Sept 4, 2009: Polite Pigeons

Oh they still crap on statues, cars, and people, they're polite to each other.



Quote:
After waiting for the fountain to be free, one bird jumped on the lever and pushed it down to fill up the bowl, while another kept watch and the third splashed in. When it had drunk its fill and cleaned its feathers, the third pigeon hopped up to the handle and let his friends have a go. The three birds continued their bathing ritual for ten minutes, entertaining passers-by in Post Office Square, in Brisbane's bustling business district.
Better hope this clever trio doesn't get your PIN number.

Thatr's incredible. I knew birds are more intelligent than people previously thought; and I know many species are more than capable of problem solving and using tools. I had no idea they were capable of such cooperative behaviour in their problem solving. That's remarkable.

The Pigeon sisters, from The Odd Couple (tv version.) They always cracked me up. And they were quite polite.

The first thing I thought when I saw the topic was, "Poisoning Polite Pigeons in the Park."
