Main article: Talking birds

Birds communicate with their flockmates through song, calls, and body language. Studies have shown that the intricate territorial songs of some birds must be learned at an early age, and that the memory of the song will serve the bird for the rest of its life. Some bird species are able to communicate in a variety of dialects. For example, the New Zealand saddleback will learn the different song “dialects” of clans of its own species, much as human beings might learn diverse regional dialects. When a territory-owning male of the species dies, a young male will immediately take his place, singing to prospective mates in the dialect appropriate to the territory he is in

Recent studies indicate that some birds may have an ability to understand grammatical structures

    Looks wonderful and I think they are very social, I just introduced a male turkey for my female one this morning and watched her reaction, which was awesome, she saw him and she was so excited and fluffed up, not aggressive just jumping playfully around near him, like hey big boy, where you been all my life?! lol :O)
