London: Researchers have found that the Great tits use different combinations of notes in their calls to communicate information about predators.

According to a scientist in Japan, the birds` made "jar" sounds for snakes and "chicka" sounds for crows and martens, which is the first demonstration birds can communicate vocally about the type of predator threatening them.

The findings are published in the journal Animal Behaviour.
