hello everyone,

i recently published this piece that may interest you.

The kea parrot (Nestor notabilis), produces a laughter-like “play call”
when they are playing. Researchers used recorded play calls from captive
kea to test how they affected wild kea and found both juveniles and adults
respond to the recorded play call -- by playing!

I hope you enjoy it.
