Are parrots to birds as primates are to mammals?

I’ve heard other primates are now entering the Stone Age, I wonder what’s keeping birds from doing the same

To enter the stone age, a group has to make stone tools. Corvids use tools, but they don't make them.

Oh yeah. Corvids. How can I tame a flock of those lads and earn their trust?
>>
>>2864862
They do make tools.

Corvids make tools.

>>2864862
So both corvids and vultures then?

Corvids are better than apes at making tools. They use tools to make OTHER tools.

They’re a little salty. Isn’t that bad for birds?

>>2864863
I plan on feeding them some bags of chips or peanuts or whatever throughout the winter to gain their trust when food is less common.
