    I hate it when people come up to me with those kinds of things and beat me at solving it first. Then they claim to be instantly smarter than me.

    I would LOVE to say that it`s stupid people, but I feel like I`d be one of them...

    And I`ll be damned if I call myself stupid!

    Well, it`s not like the parrot has to figure it anew each time. Any human who was shown how to do this could duplicate it. It`s just good memorization on the parrot`s part, and we already know they`re good at that. Not surprising.

    Okay, so it took her a few days to figure it out.

    She`s practiced it a lot since. On a first try, it always takes longer. Give that dumb bird a puzzle ring and get her to put it back together faster than a human who knows how and then I will be amazed.

    You can teach a parrot to talk, surely it would not be to difficult to teach it to solve a puzzle.

    oh hi, lets train a parrot to do a trick for 2 years then go into the public and give people who have never seen the puzzle before a chance to beat the parrot.

    It`s the exact same puzzle every time... If a human was given the same puzzle to do every day for several years, anything MORE than 5 seconds to complete it would be shocking.
