These clever little birds are very smart indeed. They cache food in many different sites, recalling those locations and finding the food again is not small task.  So much so, their little brain actually increases in size with the information, and as the winter stores are found and memory is not needed, its brain shrinks.  They are also tough little birds that will gang up on a small owl to protect its family. Fascinating.
