For a long time it has been assumed that birds are, well….”bird brained”. Birds have small brains and it has been thought  that they are therefore not anywhere near as intelligent as mammals. But in the last several decades, researchers have begun to discover that birds like the New Caledonian Crow (shown), the California Scrub Jay and even the lowly House Sparrow can be creative, solve complex problems and are quite smart. Learn why tonight on Inquiry we talk with science and natural history writer JENNIFER ACKERMAN about her brilliant new book THE GENIUS OF BIRDS.
