PBS Nova episode "Bird Brains"

Recommended Posts

An investigation into avian intelligence, airing 9pm EST (check local listing for times in other time zones) on the PBS program NOVA : http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/bird-brain.html

My usual feedback, once aired, US residents can watch on demand at the PBS website. Canadians or other national residents are geo-blocked from viewing PBS episodes online so unless you are comfortable with technology means to circumvent this, you need to watch during the to-air broadcast, or at least record it.

UPDATE - corrected to show proper time of 9pm

Just finished watching the PBS special. Very, very interesting!! I've always thought birds were smarter than most people gave them credit for. Thanks again for the heads up on this program. I really enjoyed it!
