Last weekend when I went to my parents, my dad had just washed and waxed his car (like most men the car is one of his pride and joy). Anyway, about five min after washing up the car, when he came indoors, we saw at least two dozen birds on the car s***ing and doing god knows what. It took a while t shoo them all away but when I came back inside there was one still left on the car, s I stayed inside to watch what it was doing and it took me a while to realise that that it was talk to its reflection in the car. I think it was more like fighting than talking. I always thought that they were a smarter creature than that. What does everyone else recon?

lol well you can't expect them to have the reasoning of human being and recognize their reflections as themselves like people do if they never saw it before. I remember going to the zoo that's in my neighborhood one time and there was this peacock staring at this reflection in the middle of a grassy lawn. It was staring at itself in this huge shiny sphere thing that was there as a decoration. It was so cute. I was upset that I didn't have my camera that day. It looked so conceited, checking itself out lol.
