NatGeo's "Animal Minds" article

In case you haven't read it already, here's the cover story of the March 2008 issue of "National Geographic." Virginia Morell's article discusses birds, such as Alex the renowned African Gray Parrot, New Caledonian Crows and Western Scrub-Jays.

The really interesting piece also revealed that Betty, the New Caledonian Crow whom I cite when trying to convince Mom that crows are not bad noisy creatures, died recently from an infection. That news put a slight damper on my morning.

Don't miss the related photo gallery -- which includes Uek, a New Caledonian Crow; Alex; and a Western Scrub-Jay named Psychobird -- and multiple videos. One video focuses on birds and bats.
