Birdbrains Remember You

Clearly animals have memory. My cat remembers my sister, and knows, the few times she sees her, that my sister's chair is the prime one for sitting next to during dinner. Well, apparently, studies revealed that mockingbirds remembered those who had poked their nests and screeched and dive-bombed those people (leaving others alone) even though the nest-pokers used different routes and wore different clothes. So, be careful. (Although pigeons apparently take a little longer to learn to identify people.)
