There has been a huge upsurge in interest in animal cognition over the past decade, with an increasing diversity in the species and contexts investigated. There has also been a significant growth in interest in examining cognition in animals outside the laboratory, in their natural environment. I will use examples from hummingbirds solving foraging tasks and zebra finches building nests to illustrate ways to test cognition in the wild and to point to a number of problems that arise from the enthusiasm to examine cognition in such a diversity of species and contexts.
