“Pigeons -- the rats of the winged world -- have shown an aptitude for using touchscreens to carry out an intelligence test, according to psychology research from the University of Iowa.

In a study led by Edward Wasserman, the pigeons were given a "string task", a common test of intelligence which involves attaching a treat to one of two strings and seeing if the participant can win the treat by pulling the right string.”

I watched the Video and the Pigeon would first activate the screen and then select the appropriate “digital String” dragging down the simulated food, for cognitive behaviour that’s quite impressive. An IQ assessment on Animals has been an area of interest and this could open new areas of study on comparative development psychology.
