2018  

July 10 The Parrot Club will be showing "Bird Brain: Discover the Intelligence of Birds" for movie night.

This NOVA program shown on PBS talks about how birds have advanced thinking skills that we usually assume are unique to humans. Watch astonishing tests of avian aptitude: parrots that can plan for the future, jackdaws that can "read" human faces, and crows that can solve multi-step puzzles with tools like pebbles, sticks, and hooks. NOVA puts feathered Einsteins through their paces and reveals skills that even 3 or 4-year-old children have a hard time mastering, such as empathizing with each other or putting off one reward now to get a bigger one later. From this revolution in thinking about our feathered friends, the conclusion seems irresistible that bird brains see the world in ways that aren't so different from our own.
