Birdbrain!

As a (former) birder with pocket-parrot experience (love bird): this was immediately obvious to me. Some, not all birds are curious (and vocally so), have a sense of humor and play and even ours was clever enough to understand indirect rewards to the extent that seemingly unrelated action A would beget seemingly unrelated result B which would enable seemingly unrelated opportunity C and so-on until a particular reward was obtained. 100% LOLtime!
