Don't forget, the results suggested that bird sense of smell (barring those 
anomalous vultures) was on par, or slightly better than humans. 

That's not a high bar to hit. 

If anything, it sounds like the results are showing that bird olfaction is only 
as pathetic as human olfaction. Overall not a big deal.
