Great discoveries in science (continued).

Scientists at Aberystwyth University in the UK “have found that male great tits in 20 UK towns and cities sang at a higher pitch to be heard above the man-made noise.”

According to the BBC, researchers have also found that the city birds don’t understand rural birds very well.
