How do we know they shared the rings with "no promise of reward"? If we spoke parrot we would probably hear them saying that vig is ten percent and if he don't get it next week he's gonna come round break his wings. I mean, are we seriously expected to believe that a creature that smart could be a commie?

the little cage thing in the video has a transparent plexiglass cover - it has been suggested that maybe the parrots are trying to impress the investigator who is feeding them tidbits as the human would be totally visible...

It is totally amazing though. Just for comparison I was thinking about my cats. I don't think they could ever grasp the concept of swapping the rings for food... these birds not only understanding that but then choosing to pass them to their mates... truly, mind blown!
