This article discusses the problem solving techniques of New Caledonian Crows (Corvus moneduloides). The crows have a unique beak shape that allows them to bend sticks into hooks so that they can reach insects in the inside of trees that they would not be able to reach otherwise.
This video explains the satin bowerbird (Ptilonorhynchus violaceus) sexual selection process. Male bowerbirds create stick structures called bowers which they decorate with brightly colored objects to attract mates. They compete with all the other male bowerbirds to make the most impressive nest, and the female travels from nest to nest, searching for the best decorated nest, and therefore the perfect mate.
This video is an example of social learning. In the 1920s in a small town in England, a few great tits (Parus major) discovered that they could get cream out of milk bottles if they peeled off the aluminum foil seal. Through social learning, the other great tits discovered this way to get food, and it soon spread throughout the country. This video explains how this technique was able to spread so quickly.
This is an example of migration. Every year, when it starts to become cold, the Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexipus) migrate from their homes all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico to warmer climates located in California and Mexico. Each year they travel to the same place, get through the winter, and when spring comes, they mate, lay eggs, and then die. Their offspring are the ones that return to home, in many cases to the same tree that their parents lived in.
