Birds Tweets Might Be Grammatical

Researchers at Kyoto University have discovered that birds respond to certain patterns in tweets, using a particular part of their brain that is the equivalent to the human area that processes grammar.  This is amazing news, mostly because now they can figure out how to translate bird language, and then I can make a tape in Bird that says “shut up in the morning or I will poison your birdfeed.”

One Response to Birds Tweets Might Be Grammatical

  1. I can already translate what the birds say.

    "My branch. My branch. My branch. Go away!"

    "Hey baby. Hey baby. Hey baby. Lets f*ck!"

    "Run away! Run away! Run away!"

    That should cover about 99% of what you hear birds say.
