Product information "Von wegen Spatzenhirn!"
Even though their brains are the size of a nut, the cognitive abilities of birds are comparable to those of chimpanzees or whales: birds are among the smartest animals on our planet. Crows, for example, deliberately trick other crows in order to make sure they get the biggest share of food. Great tits are also very clever and able to understand and solve complicated tasks quicker than dogs and cats. With respect, wit and admiration, this book tells of the excellent intellectual achievements of birds that would have been relegated to the realm of pure imagination until recently.
