Honeyeaters send lightning-fast warning signals »

New Holland honeyeaters are experts at sounding the alarm when there’s danger, using a two-stage alarm call. They ‘front-load’ information about urgency into the first note of their alarm call, so other honeyeaters can respond quickly. The clever honeyeaters follow this up with more notes to reinforce the message and signal how long to remain hidden.
