Does this story make tool creating and wielding cockatoos official fact? Cockatoo owners have been talking about these kinds of things for ages and have even provided hard evidence, only to be completely dismissed out of hand by scientists who "know" that cockatoos are mere stupid animals.
This will probably be written off as yet another anomaly, an extreme exception to the notion held dear by science--that animals are too stupid to do smart things, a view curiously inherited by science's veritable nemesis, mainstream religion.
Science must discard it's old notions, prejudices and preconceptions, viewing the world through it's own version of rose-coloured glasses. It must stop filtering out, rejecting whatever does not conform to it's prejudices and start observing objectively, fairly.
