Animal Communication. Could Ducks Be Talking About Your Bad Call?

 

Before you call a duck, make sure you know what you're saying.

 

 

NPRs podcast, Radiolab, ran a recent show discussing the complexities of animal communication.  In the last decade it’s been discovered that animals are saying intricate, specific things.  Just because we don’t understand their language, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t using language to discuss shapes and colors, and discussing animals.

The podcast specifically talks about monkeys talking to each other and prairie dogs discussing shapes & people.  In fact research is showing that prairie dogs are the word-smiths of the animal kingdom.

The podcast at Radiolab, ‘Wild Talk’, can be found here.

After listening to it you’ll probably want to practice your duck calls.  Just remember to practice “happy ducks”.  Even ducks won’t want to hang out with complainers.
