Communication between territorial songbirds usually involves a transfer of encoded information over long distances. We would expect coding and decoding strategies to be adaptive given the constraints imposed by the habitat. We used playback to examine some song parameters important for information transfer in the wren, Troglodytes troglodytes. Six stimuli were tested with various modifications to song rhythmicity, song composition, element structure, syntax and overall song spectra. Song… CONTINUE READING
