Animal Behavior and Intelligence

A Listmania! list by Alex K. Chen (Simfish InquilineKea) (Redmond, WA)
The list author says: "Note: I probably won't update this as much now. To see more resources, visit what I've collected at http://www.quora.com/What-are-some-good-resources-for-animal-behavior-animal-intelligence-convergent-evolution-of-animal-intelligence?q=resources+animal+behavior

and http://books.google.com/books?uid=109982067040770166048&as_coll=1015&source=gbs_lp_bookshelf_list

This isn't just about intelligence, but about behavior.

Almost all mammals and birds seem to have remarkably similar emotions and behaviors. While some are smarter than others, many are just as aware as others. And they know a lot of things that people don't realize they know.
