What I'd be interested in would be the question if he hides his tool or what happens to the tool after he gets the nut. Is there any sort of reuse or does he build a new tool each time.

Would he recognize premade tools, maybe pick the best one from a collection of tools present?

There's also some potential in seeing if birds exibit certain types of economic behaviour. If it would be somewhat tedious to collect two nuts per day and he could live off one, would he save some nuts to build a more complex tool (requireing a day+ of build time) that would allow him to harvest a "free" nut each day etc.
