Self-control in birds

Postby Pajarita » Mon Aug 06, 2018 8:52 am

A study that found that birds have as much impulse control as primate species -something that does NOT surprise me at all! Now, I am putting this under Training because it seems to me that the ability to control or act on an impulse [created, in turn, by a stimulus, of course] is essential to training.
