    Male mice serenade potential mates with ultrasonic love songs, a study by US scientists has revealed.

    The ultrasonic chirps emitted by mice resemble birdsong.

    Why is this surprising?

    I've seen Mickey serenades Minnie MANY times!

    I seem to remember reading in my physiology of behavior book that female mice wiggle their ears when they're "ready for love". I wonder if they've played any of these recordings for the gals to see how they respond?
