A viral video on the internet shows why a telecommunication antenna in a rural area in California was no longer functioning: it was full of acorns. More precisely 130 kilograms of acorns. Everyone immediately suspected squirrels, but the culprit was another animal, according to Walter Koenig, a researcher at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
Ghinda was stored in the antenna by a bird, a spearhead species called Melanerpes formicivorus. These birds are famous for the bizarre places they hide food supplies. Koenig said he had discovered such a "deposit" in a traffic light.
