<div dir="ltr"><div>hi everyone,<div><br></div><div>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:</div>
