Many animals engage in food-caching behavior, collecting and storing food during times of plenty to secure resources during times of scarcity. For this behavior to be advantageous to the storing individual, it needs to remember where it has hidden the food stores, and ensure these stores are secured from potential thieves. My presentation will examine avian cognitive abilities focusing on these two themes.
