Monkey see ... Monkey do ... Literally Wink

Study: Monkeys share human preference for imitation

A new study shows capuchin monkeys prefer humans whose behavior mimics theirs, a trait they share with humans, scientists say.

Research conducted by the National Institutes of Health in cooperation with two Italian institutions examined how monkeys reacted to two types of humans -- ones who copied their actions and ones who didn't.

"If one person imitates what a monkey does, and the other person does not imitate, the monkey prefers to spend more time in front of the person that imitated them," said Dr. Annika Paukner at the National Institutes of Health offices in Poolesville, Maryland.

Research has shown for some time that humans prefer to interact with others who act like them, and people have a subconscious tendency to imitate others. Paukner told CNN the new study shows it is more than just a human trait.

"It's something that's quite old and something very, very basic. It's not just for us sophisticated humans," she said.

In the study, a capuchin monkey was given a wiffle ball and was allowed to interact with a pair of researchers -- one who, using another ball, attempted to mimic the action of the monkey, and one who deliberately acted in a different way.

Monkeys in the study consistently spent more time interacting with the imitators. They also more readily accepted food and trinkets from the mimicking humans, even when the non-imitators offered the same rewards.

According to the report, the new findings indicate an evolutionary link to the way humans form friendships and create social connections. It also eventually may help people who struggle in social situations, including those suffering from autism.

"Observing how imitation promotes bonding in primates may lead to insights in disorders in which imitation and bonding are impaired," Dr. Duane Alexander of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development said in a written statement.

Autism spectrum disorders are often marked by an inability to recognize and process social cues that are clear to others.

The National Research Council in Rome and the University of Parma conducted the research along with the National Institutes of Health.

The full report appears in this week's edition of the journal Science.

I put a pole with three hooks on it out in the yard, and any three limb is at least 10 feet away, so the squirrels can't jump on it from the trees.  And then I grease the middle section of the pole with vaseline from time to time, so the squirrels can't shinny up and get the food.  The pole has three flat feet on it, and I put big rocks on them to keep it from tipping.  There are three hooks at the top, and I hang three tube feeders, with black oiled sunflower seed.

For the little tiny birds that I feed nyjer seed (black gold $$), I hang metal mesh feeders that I hang inside hard plasitic 1/2 globes with a hook inside, from a tree limb, that will tip if a pesky squirrel tries to get to the seeds.  I have two of those and have been successful.  So far.

I have rabbits.Big rabbits,and baby rabbits.
Also little turtles.I have a pair of turtles that live under my lakeside deck.I know they are the same turtles because granddaughter and I marked them.The Auburn colored one is gone.   
The Bama colored one is still around here.I wonder if the babies belong to her?They are the size of an oreo cookie.I never would have seen them,but Digger brought them to me.    I had to hide them from him.   Monkey Devil!

   You are good Muffy.The squirrels aren't messing with my seed too much.They are busy taunting Digger.   
Funniest thing I have seen is when squirrels were stealing baby apples from the neighbor's fruit trees.It was amazing how quick they are.

Hey there, Trimm!! 
I have a squirel that keeps helping himself to the bird food 

We have had a big squirrel problem this year & then all of a sudden they have disappeared; all of them!!  I did read where raccoons will eat rodents & we have been over-run with raccoons this year (we have never had them in our backyard, we have a 10 ft. privacy fence) until this year! I'm thrilled they are gone because my pecan tree is loaded this year & it's a pain in the arse to keep the squirrels & the birds out of it!!
