This form of recycling is for the birds.


One man has discovered a way to get birds to return litter in exchange for a treat.

Hans Forsberg built a machine in which a treat would dispense to birds from one hole once the animal dropped a bottle cap, soda can or other form of garbage in a separate hole.

So, what did Forsberg have to do in order to train the birds, and how did he build the machine?

He explains it all in a YouTube video that can be seen by clicking or tapping here.

There is also a Facebook post embedded below that explains the process and the results, which have turned these birds into recycling masters!

Check it out and give us your thoughts in the comments below.

Would you want a machine like this in your backyard?
