Birds helping humans find honey

Believe it or not, also called honeyguides, these birds communicate with humans. They guide humans, and possibly other large mammals (such as the Honey Badger) to bee colonies. Once the mammal opens the hive and takes the honey, the bird feeds on the remaining wax and larvae. This clip is from a BBC series called “Trials of Life” and the episode is called “Talking to Strangers”
