The book has examples from a number of species. The species interested in
"pretty objects"
happens to be a bird. I don't recall if there was more than one example of this.

"But let me point out something so you can put the fossils in context.
During the period from 200,000 to 40,000, the period of the Neanderthals,
objects were carried or traded and they ended up quite far from their

Fair argument, Glenn.
