Dear Shirley et al,

As Stephen points out we are indeed looking at this at the moment and 
untangling just how much information is within those calls. We're about half 
way and there is a lot going on in the signalling system of miners, information 
encoded within their vocalisations is on par with other more fully understood 
systems like meerkats, for example. We'll know more and publish on it soon, but 
the calls are far from noise alone.
