The sex with the reduced sex chromosome dies earlier: a comparison across the tree of life
TLDR
The importance of considering chromosome morphology in addition to sexual selection and environment as potential drivers of sexual dimorphism is demonstrated, and the fundamental understanding of the mechanisms that shape an organism's lifespan is advanced.
Development of Avian External Genitalia: Interspecific Differences and Sexual Differentiation of the Male and Female Phallus
TLDR
It is found that external genital development in male and female chickens resembles that of female ducks, which raises the possibility that male phallus development became feminized during galliform evolution.
Effects of cross-fostering on the sexual imprinting of the female Zebra Finch Taeniopygia guttata..
Sexual imprinting is a well-known phenomenon in the ♂♂ of many bird species, but its occurrence in ♀♀, particularly of dimorphic species, has been questioned. ♀♀ of the Zebra Finch, Taeniopygia

How behavioural studies contribute to the species problem: a piscine perspective
TLDR
The experimental methods favoured in seeking behavioural isolating mechanisms, the challenge to the species concept when gene trees and species trees disagree, and the dynamic situation in the Great Lakes of Africa offers under-exploited opportunities to test whether behavioural isolate mechanisms evolve in the absence of secondary contact.
A phylogenetic analysis and classification of recent dabbling ducks (Tribe anatini) based on comparative morphology
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of 157 characters of definitive plumages and soft parts, natal plumages, tracheae, and nontracheal skeletons of 59 Anatini provided a phylogenetic hypothesis of high consistency and resolution and indicated that interspecific interfertility is a poor indicator of relationship.
Evolutionary Genetics of the Anatidae
TLDR
Generic grouping of species agreed with the current classification with a few exceptions, and Cereopsis was included in the Anserinae, but with rather distant similarities with the other members of the subfamily.
THE EVOLUTIONARY SIGNIFICANCE OF WILD HYBRIDIZATION IN SOUTH AFRICAN HIGHVELD DUCKS
TLDR
These hybrids call for a revision of current theory concerning wild hybridization with respect to monomorphic and dimorphic ducks, as reported at Barberspan, the major waterfowl-ringing station in Africa.

Hostile Behavior and Reproductive Isolating Mechanisms in the Avian Genera Catharus and Hylocichla
TLDR
The genus Hylocichla of the A.O.U. checklists should be considered congeneric with Catharus except for the Turdus-like Wood Thrush, which has been left in HylOCichla pending further investigation.
Hybridization in the Anatidae and Its Taxonomic Implications
TLDR
Waterfowl of the family Anatidae have provided the greatest number and variety of bird hybrids originating from both natural and captive conditions and it can probably be safely concluded that the Anatidae are extremely close-knit in an evolutionary sense.
