As scientists come to understand more about the secrets of bird life, they are unlocking fascinating insights into memory, game theory, and the nature of intelligence itself.</p><p><em>The Thing with Feathers</em> explores the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, the good deeds of fairy-wrens, the influential flocking abilities of starlings, the deft artistry of bowerbirds, the extraordinary memories of nutcrackers, the lifelong loves of albatross, and other mysteries—revealing why birds do what they do, and offering a glimpse into our own nature.</p><p> Tue, 25 Mar 2014 14:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 86633 at http://wamc.org "The Thing With Feathers" By Noah Strycker Vox Pop : Birding with Rich Guthrie : 6/13/13 http://wamc.org/post/vox-pop-birding-rich-guthrie-61313 <p>Our first Vox Pop back from the fund drive and it's Rich Guthrie and Nancy Castillo talking about birds and bird watching.
