This is one smart bird! 

Researchers from the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna and the University of Oxford report that Goffin cockatoos can make and use elongated-tools of appropriate shape and length out of amorphous materials, suggesting that the birds can anticipate how the tools will be used.

In this video, a Cockatoo is given different materials which he will have to create a ‘tool’ out of in order to gain access to a treat that is encased in glass. The experiment certainly proves that the bird has the ability to think intelligently about process and execution. 

Cockatoo’s are not the only super smart birds. We shared a video a while back, seen HERE, where a crow figured out an 8-part puzzle in order to get a treat.
