Avian recognition of human faces

I’ve added my comments on the physorg.com site to those that follow this article, which attempts to convince us that birds recognize individual  human facial features via some unknown mechanism that does not involve olfaction and pheromones.

I know you, bad guy! Magpies recognize humans

Most people who have had the experience of having pet animals in their houses have the gut feeling that the animals can “recognize” us. They seem to recognize our faces, our voices and our smell. One way or another, they respond to us differently from other people.

James Vaughn Kohl was the first to accurately conceptualize human pheromones, and began presenting his findings to the scientific community in 1992. He continues to present to, and publish for, diverse scientific and lay audiences, while constantly monitoring the scientific presses for new information that is relevant to the development of his initial and ongoing conceptualization of human pheromones.
