Inter-species cooperation between the honeyguide bird and humans - David Attenborough video

In a mutually benificial cooperation man and bird work together and share the spoils. Tough on the bees however.

The Kenyan honeyguide bird has an unusual and very remarkable behavior: it engages in an inter-species collaboration with humans to locate African bee colonies. In exchange for their guide service, the birds then share the harvest of the recovered honey.
