BIRDS 7

Though this won't come as new knowledge to the many who've already observed, or long known of, such things - it seems pleasingly ironic that the magpie, the bird which refused to mourn at the folkloric crucifixion of Jesus, is seen to grieve for its dead. Enjoy that Death Reference site - it's truly a good one.

Great stuff, William. I like the fact that cows may well bear grudges, too!

this definitely won't be new knowledge to you William, and you may have already seen this photo, but thought I'd give a link for grieving chimps anyway
