Birds making group decisions

Bookmarked ‘Democracy’ governs mass jackdaw take-offs (exeter.ac.uk)

“Our study shows that by calling out jackdaws effectively ‘cast a vote’ and, when calling reaches a sufficient level, a mass departure takes place.”

Surrealist zebra art

Liked Morris Hirshfield (1872–1946) (Design is fine. History is mine.)

Zebras, 1942. An immigrant tailor, slipper manufacturer in Brooklyn and self-taught artist who took up painting at the age of 65, Hirshfield attracted a great degree of attention during his brief career as an artist (1937-1946). His pictures were embraced by the Surrealists, collected by Peggy Guggenheim, and featured in a highly publicized one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1943. Via American Folk Art Museum
