IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers

From a recent article: Scientists with the Robot Engineering Technology Research Center of east China’s Shandong University of Science and Technology say they implanted micro electrodes in the brain of a pigeon so they can command it to fly right or left or up or down.

How does this relate to networks? There is a RFC standard (RFC 1149) on using pigeons to carry IP datagrams.

(And if you are really interested in the absurd, look at this article on similar work on sharks!)
