Human & Wild Bird Honey Hunting Collaboration September 04 2016
Honey is one of our most precious ingredients. It makes most of our Paleo desserts possible, and its amazing all on its own with its distinctive flavors that reflect so clearly what the bees eat and where they've been. So much effort goes into honey.
So this BBC video showing how folks in East Africa and the honeyguide bird work together to find hives and gather is super fun. Birds love honey too, and they've figured out how to communicate with people to help us find and grab honey - something the birds wouldn't be able to do on their own. An amazing relationship between wild animals and humans! Makes you appreciate honey... and how we don't have to climb trees to get it. Here's more on a recent study with the birds.
