Go to: The amazing intelligence of crows

Quine I can not provide any research but I have observed an interesting change in behaviour of a pair of Robins that regularily nest at the bottom of our garden.

In previous years they have collected the nesting materials in the typical 'how to build a Robins nest' manner. This year however I have noted that they have waited on the fence for our dog to go out into the garden, do whatever it needed to do to relieve itself, and then kick up grass and moss debris at the conclusion of its activity.

The robin has then nipped in and helped itself to the moss - revisiting a number of times to the same picking area.

"Perhaps morality comes from the inherent logic of behavior that has consequences for other agents that have goals"

What a superbly simple but powerfull statement
