Re: New Caledonian Crows Instinctively Use Tools -)



Well...

You take the High road and I'll take the Low road, and I'll get to Scotland afore ya....

Of course we could ask B.B.King about "Caldonia"...

Enough!  I give myself up ... It's tired and I'm getting late....

BTW: Tool use had been considered a human (or homind) only skill until recently. Then we decided that Chimps and some other apes could make and use some tools. Then we noticed that some birds (aka dinosaurs) could use and sometimes create tools as well. The list keeps growing - just last week wild Capuchin monkeys were determined to be tool makers/users...

Just wait, someone will explain the reduction of tyrannosaurid forelimbs to increased use and dependance on tools!!
