In tonight’s pledge drive episode of the Perpetual Notion Machine, we look into the world of bird intelligence. They might even rival human beings in reason, thinking process, communication and understanding. Our guest is Jennifer Ackerman, the author of the book The Genius of Birds. Tonight, she’ll discuss some of the possible characteristics that make birds intelligent, what are the smartest birds in her opinion, and how some birds have very intricate bird calls. And next week Jennifer will be back on the show to continue the discussion.
