I don't think the sequence is necessarily relevant. There are many examples 
of animals adapting their behavior in response to humans and human 
technology, from begging for food to taking up residence in man-made 

The tests would, I suppose, to take homing pigeons to wilderness and see 
how they navigate and to look at migratory birds and see if they ever rely 
on man-made or natural landmarks.
