'Featheries' might be interested to know that scientists have found that some birds, like some primates, show a preference for one side of the body to the other.
Pacific crows have been studied making tools to gather insects inside holes and tunnels, like the type chimpanzees use. Unlike chimps, these birds make much more delicate, refined tools. Scientists say their results point towards handedness being a product of being able to carry out complex sequences of actions, like those in tool making or talking.
