Sulphur-crested cockatoos learn to open wheelie bins in Sydney – video

Sulphur-crested cockatoos learn to pry open containers, and researchers discover that the new skill has caught on in 44 Sydney suburbs in just two years. With help from the public, Australian and German ecologists have documented that cockatoos learn bin-dive behavior through social interactions. The research, published in the journal Science, also found differences in the cockatoos’ bin-opening technique between different suburbs, arising from “local subcultures.”
