How Honeyguide Birds Talk to People

Video credit: BBSRC.

Honeyguide birds live in Mozambique. These birds have learned how to make a call to lead humans to bee nests. The humans harvest the honey, and the bird gets to eat the wax combs that are left behind.

I’m amazed that this relationship between humans and wild animals has developed. Wouldn’t it have been incredible to see this the first time humans and these birds realized they could work together to get a sweet treat?
