Cool stuff. In time division multiplexing, that would be a mSec snap shot view of evolution in the making. Same thing goes for Orcas beaching themselves to snag seals, and in my humble opinion, even the Cormorant... is it a bird or a fish? It can both fly AND dive to depths of 90 ft to catch prey. While I haven't bothered to research it, I suspect at some point in the Cormorant's evolutionary cycle it might have been a fish.

Phil, I agree, it does show a glimpse of how evolutionary design can start. But, at what point do those idiot pigeons figure out they should start their own evolution a few feet farther back from the edge of the water?!?!
