What are different animal's cognitive limitations? How can we observe this in the wild?

There is obviously no black and white answer, but the study of behavioural ecology tackles this issue. Empirical studies in the animal's natural environment are more difficult but more rewarding to conduct than lab based studies. Studies of corvids have shown hugh potential in their cognitive capabilities for solving food puzzle boxes, furthermore the spread of this knowledge through their society is astounding.
