Subject: [Tweeters] Birds Living In Bigger Groups Are Brainier
hello everyone,

i just published a piece about a newly-published NATURE study, which finds
that Australian magpies who live in larger groups show increased cognitive
performance over those who live in smaller groups, and this, in turn, is
linked to increased reproductive success. This study’s findings suggest
that these birds’ social environment drives both the development and the
evolution of intelligence.
