omg this is adorable scientists set up an experiment where birds could request to video chat with each other turns out birds love to video chat with their friends https://nytimes.com/interactive/2023/04/21/science/parrots-video-chat-facetime.html…
I feel like there's a bird-based social media joke in here somewhere

It'd be interesting to see which animals exhibit this behavior and which don't
