Scientists have made fascinating discoveries about animals and how they communicate. For instance, bird songs are more than music to the ears of the forest; it turns out they are speaking a language understood by many species. Erick Greene discusses his latest research on animal communication with Maria Armoudian.

Erick Greene is a Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Montana. He has published numerous papers in ornithology, the latest in collaboration with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
