Very interesting article. I remember reading about the Tui in New Zealand how depending on the circumstances is the singing which is a very complex thing. Thanks Kevin!

I believe this to be true. Except that I cry a lot as a result of listening to music. Do birds cry?

Interesting article. I have a friend with two budgies who sing a long when she puts a music video on. She keeps a list of which music they like the most!

Yippy for every study that points out that the human species is far from the top of the top.
