Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching
I gave up on trying to fight the &%#$#ing squirrels several years ago. I realized that I have to go off to my regular job, while their regular job is outwitting me. It's not that they're smarter than me, they just have more time to devote...honestly.

Crows on the other hand could be smarter than me. They have been shown unequivocally to not just use tools, but make them (from sticks, bits of wire, etc.) That puts them right up there with us and chimps.
