BBC - Earth News - Bird brains prove to be very sexy
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Brainy male birds are more sexually attractive to female birds, scientists have discovered.

Researchers gave male bowerbirds a set of cognitive tests to evaluate their problem solving ability.

Bowerbirds that performed well in the tests also mated with the most females, when compared with their more stupid rivals.
