The researchers from Vienna observed this skill over 5 years ago. It's just another piece of puzzle to how the birds learn. Interestingly, the cocatoos were never seen making tools in the wild, like Darwin finches or Caledonian crows.

No real Norwegian Blue would be caught doing that.

Another one of my late night silly grammar questions (pity that Ppauper left :-()
1. "... from a binomial distribution with the probability of success ..."
2. "... from a binomial distribution with probability of success ..."
3. "... from a binomial distribution with a probability of success ..."

I would use 1, but I accidentally saw 2 in one paper, and then the google check returned also 3!

I'm clearly not a songbird.

It's "with the probability of success $p$." in my case.

Simple, to the point.

With anything like that I usually go with what I would say if lecturing. But I've now read the options so many times I'm no longer sure what that would be!

Now I don't know whether I should enrol in singing classes or CQF :-)

But never get your feathers ruffled?

why not replace the about ambiguous text by a single mathematical equation?

"define once, use many times" like legal documents and contracts. The risk is you might interleave 1,2 and 3 in an article. Happens all the time.

// Some ML articles: "use many times and define NOWHERE" aka forward references. Very annoying.
