The Crow Cam

An amazing story about crows' use of tools--as documented by miniature cameras attached beneath the birds' tail-feathers.

(I had better luck with the video clips here.)

All this is very suggestive--it's the sort of thing it would be worth delving into much more deeply if you were writing a novel from the point of view of a bird--and indeed I came across a another quite lovely story just now at the BBC site that I think is going to make its way into my next novel in one form or another...
