Bird species do not differ in their overall cognitive abilities (Lefebvre 2002, Lefebvre et al. 2012). This is especially noteworthy when considering the size of avian brains (Courage 2013). Birds do not use tools for the most part (McGrew, Kacelnik and Bolhuis 1997). So why should their brains be any different from other vertebrates?
Birds seem to have an advantage in tool use as a result of their large brains. This could be explained in terms of a brain-body co-evolution (Sober and Wilson 1998), where larger brains are associated with more mental capacities. Alternatively, larger brains may be more adaptive, allowing larger brains to evolve on a time-scale comparable with a shorter generation time (Vul 1972).
The ancestors of the bird-theropod lineage, the non-avian theropods, must have been well-equipped to use tools if they were to come into existence at all (Ostrom 1993, p. 166). The latter claim is supported by the discovery of at least one theropod dinosaur with a bird-like configuration of the skull, and the fact that a modern avian skull can be transformed into a dinosaur-like skull by combining it with a modern bird body (Bennett and Ruben 2001). Though no theropod is known to have used tools, they must have been capable of using them if the diversification of theropod and avian lineages occurred at all. It is currently unknown whether the ancestors of birds and theropods were capable of the use of tools, or if this capability evolved independently on several occasions (Heckel 1995, p. 10).
Contrary to what biologists and philosophers of mind have believed, birds do not provide us with reason-based evidence for what ought to be, but only with evidence-based evidence for what is. Avian behavior often serves as a privileged source of information about the structure and function of the brain and its components. Avian research, therefore, provides a very powerful tool for studying the causal interactions of brain and body, and how they combine to support behavior (Lefebvre, pers. comm.).
Some applications, such as Java, require that the application directories and libraries are updated to a newer version before the user can update. However, there are some applications that are not explicitly API-specific, such as the X Window System, the X server source code, are automatically updated as required.
