Stunned scientists around the world? The seagull I saw doing this on AFV 10yrs ago sure didn`t stun anyone... Sure, they were amused, but hardly stunned...

i bet birds have been doing it longer than humans have

Amazing humans fish like birds.

Anyone seen those crows (or something) that drop nuts onto roads so that cars drive over them n crack them open?

"...why didnt it just eat the bread?"

Erm.. that one piece of bread got him 3-4 fish that`s why :P

I seem to remember someone else who turned a little bit of food into lots of food involving bread and fish.. :O... jesus bird!

It`s kind of insane to think that animals that have (debateably) existed longer than mankind wouldn`t have developed any kind of intelligence.

Look at dolphins. And whales. And elephants. And horses. And probably roosterroaches.

Hmm.

Loxen...there is obviously intelligence all over the animal kingdom, but the use of tools is thought to be restricted to a VERY select few. That fact that we`re seeing that in birds now why it is stunning scientists.

This stunned scientists? really?
Scientists can`t be that dumb... c`mon...
Why is it that every once in a while a new video surfaces of an animal doing something, and "scientists are shocked" or "baffled"! As if they`re idiots who just couldn`t accept the possibility of animals doing something remotely "intelligent" (or adaptive... whatever floats your technojargon boat) prior to being shown point blank footage? C`mon surely scientists of all people should be a wee bit smarter and more flexible to such an occurance.
Or does saying "scientists shocked" just make it more noteworthy to average joe, and in truth scientists are like... psshh... I saw that 20 years ago, infact I have 3 books out on the topic.

Typical "journalistic science". Firstly, the bird APPEARS TO THINK like a human fisher, since no-one can say what a bird is thinking or if it even does, the most that can be assumed is that APPEARS to.

Secondly, how do we know it isn`t the fish that have trained the bird to put the bread there as a convenient way for the fish to commit suicide? I`m calling it a Piscian Suicide Booth and anyone who disagrees can go eat a floating bit of bread.

It fishes like an ADD five year old fishing for the first time. But that`s pretty cool.

crows are known nto drop walnut on crosswalks so cars will run over them and open them, and then wait for the walk signal and go eat it.

I love watching animals be smart :P

I can see the narrator with a pair of binoculars watching this poor bird through his ultra-tinted windows.
"Yes, yes! There he goes! And he takes the bread... ooooh what a clever bird!"
What a creepy birdophile.

Lmfao, that bird is hilarious when it extends its neck to flip the bread, or move it.

The intelligence this implies is extraordinary. A bird using tools has to have at least the intelligence of a chimpanzee using a stick to catch ants, or greater. Millions of years from now we can expect birds to develop advanced language! TIGHT

The narrator almost sounded like a pedo, and the bird was his unfortunate victim.

But yea, that was cool. Pretty smart bird.

He thinks he`s people!

Its great to see the other birds, I think gulls, eating the bread on the ground, whilst our little buddy gets a much better meal.

Never follow the pack my good bird! Always blaze your own trail.
