Seagulls, despite their small brain size, are capable of solving tasks that require ingenuity. Scientists came to this conclusion after conducting a study in several colonies of wild gulls in Canada, Science Alert reported.
During the study, scientists decided to use a test: gulls had to pull a string to get a reward in the form of food. It is noted that about 90% of birds coped with the test, but most of them - parrots and crows.

About 25% of attempts for gulls were also successful. At the same time, 21% of birds passed the test the first time. This is a very good figure, considering that crows were only five percent better.
