Eagle Heights


Whilst on a trip to Eagle Heights, a centre for showing birds of prey, I learned that birds are not as stupid as I first thought and certainly can communicate ideas amongst their communities.


A particular bird of prey native to the Falkland Islands, the name of which I have forgotten, spends much of its time walking about and therefore came to grief on the beaches which had been mined by the Argentinians.


 Not only did these birds manage to communicate to their friends that the beach was dangerous but they managed to work out that it would be very useful to sit on the rocks beyond the beach and wait for the Penguins to walk up the beach and blow themselves up, then they would be able to feed on pieces of exploded Penguin.


It would seem that Darwin's natural selection works just a little bit more quickly than we previously thought.
