There are a few observations of Red-legged seriema cracking nuts on the ground. We want to know more about this behaviour and try to understand some interesting aspects of cognitive abilities, cultural transmission, and learning about this behaviour.

In this project, you would be in the field observing several individuals of Red-legged seriema and we can also elaborate on some experiments.

What is going on here? We think we have an idea. Do you want to help us test it?

The fieldwork takes place in Florestal/Minas Gerais, in southeastern Brazil.
