    Bees communicate by dancing. Whales can communicate by singing, and can stop a song midway and then, 6 months later, take it up from where they left off.

    Birdsong is quite complicated too, and has regional 'accents'.

    The problem is that all of these are very basic communication, and it is hard to view them as 'language'.
