Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council - How honeyguide birds talk to people

Research now reveals that humans use special calls to solicit the help of honeyguides and that honeyguides actively recruit appropriate human partners. This relationship is a rare example of cooperation between humans and free-living animals.
