These thief cockatoos even learned to open the lids of trash cans.

Historically found in the forests of Australia and neighboring countries, the great yellow-spotted cockatoo has appreciated the advantages of habitats, and now this bird is widely distributed in urban areas.

In Sydney, the parrots have adapted to their new habitat, looking for food in garbage heaps.

Birds not only acquired a new skill for themselves, but also constantly improve it.

After the locals, dissatisfied with the garbage scattered around the tanks, began to put heavy stones on the lids, the cockatoo figured out how to get around this obstacle.

The bird methodically pushes the stone to the edge until it falls, and then, knocking the lid on its head, drops it.

At the same time, parrots developed a number of unique tricks. So cockatoos bypass the tank on the right, holding on to the lid, and in the city center the lid is pulled towards them, being on it.
