Prepare yourself, this shit is scary: New research has found that pigeons *cough* flying rats *cough* can recognize faces and therefore differentiate between people. A group of French researchers presented a paper at the Society for Experimental Biology Annual Conference that claimed pigeons in a Paris park repeatedly recognized the difference between two humans of the same age, gender and skin color. Basically, it comes down to food. Pigeons learned which of the two was giving them food, even when they changed clothes. So pigeons also recognize fashion. Awesome.
