Many birds (and other animals) demonstrate fairly high intelligence.
I just wish he'd stop with the Robert Penn Warren recitations:

Evening Hawk

by Robert Penn Warren

From plane of light to plane, wings dipping through
Geometries and orchids that the sunset builds,
Out of the peak's black angularity of shadow, riding
The last tumultuous avalanche of
Light above pines and the guttural gorge,
The hawk comes.
His wing
Scythes down another day, his motion
Is that of the honed steel-edge, we hear
The crashless fall of stalks of Time.

The head of each stalk is heavy with the gold of our error.

Look! Look! he is climbing the last light
Who knows neither Time nor error, and under
Whose eye, unforgiving, the world, unforgiven, swings
Into shadow.

Long now,
The last thrush is still, the last bat
Now cruises in his sharp hieroglyphics. His wisdom
Is ancient, too, and immense. The star
Is steady, like Plato, over the mountain.

If there were no wind we might, we think, hear
The earth grind on its axis, or history
Drip in darkness like a leaking pipe in the cellar.

It gets old.

I love to kick at the darkness until it bleeds light.
Or sink the knife of reality to the hilt into the belly of denial and twist it with a smirk.
You alternate between squealing like a stuck pig troll, or running like a punk sissy.
I'm in your head.
Smile.

I just watched a show called Vice on HBO. One segment was about Colorado and pot, which estimates that this year $2 billion dollars that would have gone to the Mexican drug cartels will stay in Colorado and be taxed at something like 20%. It's free market capitalism and it will be coming to a state near you.
The more interesting segment was on defectors from North to South Korea and the struggles they have. Most are sponsored by a church with a very brave minister (well, not brave enough to flex his Christian muscles on Topix every day. That is the ultimate form of bravery.) who helps them defect. He was asked how the North Koreans were embracing membership in his church.
He explained it this way: the North Koreans already have a religion. The only difference is the subject. Kim Il Sung is God. Kim Jong Il is Jesus. Their Bible is their party doctrine.
These are the words of the South Korean Christian minister. Her recognizes that Communist leaders become the religious figureheads of their societies that are, therefore, no less religious than any nation full of a Christians. The only difference is the tangibility of the god.
Here we go again with the poster punk of 'rational atheist' oxymorons:

Shiitehead would have us believe that having Kim II Sung in our neighborhood is the same as having Churches.

Proof that evil makes you stupid.

That’s what happens when a Chiwawa does a research study on the intelligence between German Shepherds and Chiwawas.

Of course the Chiwawa is going to claim to be a overall more intelligent and a bad a** Mother F**ker.

What Chiwawa doesn’t think that way?, lol.

Why am I NOT surprised by your childish and submissive response!!! You ask for verification, I give it to you, and you suddenly become embarrassed with no defense, so you do what all children do, you try and make a joke to cover up your inability to rationally defend these results, thereby proving the lower intelligence level of believers as compared to non-believers. Thanks again for, with your worthless response, validating the results of the above research.

You really should have looked up the spelling for "Chiwawa." Your response appears even more stupid.

Thanks for making the point once again that believers are less intelligence than non-believers, with you misspell of Chihuahua. It takes almost no intelligence at all to look up a word you are unfamiliar with. Lazy or stupid? Both maybe?

You confuse your rejecting an answer with there being no answer to reject.
It was still an answer. You did not like it. You argue against your own crap sir.

moral of story - why are you so interested in having a corrupt and narcissisitc communist/socialist leader like the north koreans instead of having the Perfect Lord Jesus Christ who loved us and gave Himself for us???
