hi everyone,

i just finished writing a story about goffin's cockatoos that figured out
on their own how to pick a series of complex locks. i am sure this doesn't
surprise anyone, but the sheer complexity of the task, including the fact
that each lock had to be solved in a specific sequence, is rather
impressive. the story includes lots of pictures and several videos so you
can watch these feathered locksmiths at work:
