Examining songbird migration along the Delaware Bay: a comprehensive approach
There are several remote-sensing tools readily available for the study of nocturnally flying animals (e.g., migrating birds); each possessing unique measurement biases. I used multiple techniques to
Using Passive Acoustic Monitoring to Determine Temporal Patters and Mixed Species Flocking Associations of Migrating North American Warblers in the Gulf of Maine
Recent development of plans for offshore and land-based wind energy projects has created the need for a better understanding of migration in the Gulf of Maine region, an important flyway for
Autumn morning flights of migrant songbirds in the northeastern United States are linked to nocturnal migration and winds aloft
ABSTRACT Many passerines that typically migrate at night also engage in migratory flights just after sunrise. These widely observed “morning flights” often involve birds flying in directions other
Decoding the ‘zeep’ complex: quantitative analysis of interspecific variation in the nocturnal flight calls of nine wood warbler species (Parulidae spp.)
TLDR
The results suggest the calls of many members of the “zeep” complex exhibit species-specific differences in structure, which may allow differentiation of at least five “ZEEP” species based on call alone.
Individual flight-calling behaviour in wood warblers
Audio-based localization for swarms of micro air vehicles
TLDR
This paper presents a cooperative method to address the localization problem for a team of MAVs, where individuals obtain their position through perceiving a sound-emitting beacon MAV that is flying relative to a reference point in the environment.
Flight call rates of migrating thrushes: effects of wind conditions, humidity and time of day at an illuminated offshore platform
TLDR
This first long-term study at an offshore site in the southern North Sea is investigated the effect of weather on the frequency of flight calls of three thrush-species at an illuminated platform and a monitoring programme is suggested that could help to reduce mass mortalities at illuminated structures.
Contrasting coloured ventral wings are a visual collision avoidance signal in birds
TLDR
The collision-avoidance hypothesis, which proposes that conspicuously contrasting ventral wings are visual signals that help birds to avoid collisions, is tested and shows that larger species have lower manoeuvrability than smaller species, and colonial-breeding species frequently encounter con- and heterospecifics, increasing their risk of in-flight collisions.
Vision and vocal communication guide three-dimensional spatial coordination of zebra finches during wind-tunnel flights.
TLDR
It is found that the finches can use both visual and acoustic cues for three-dimensional flock coordination, which furthers the mechanistic understanding of collective motion in birds and highlights the impact interindividual vocal interactions can have on group performances in these animals.

The Northern Shrikes of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa and the ecological implications of its impaling prey are studied.
Species Relationships and Adaptations for Sympatry in the Avian Genus Vireo
TLDR
This paper reviews species relationships within the New World avian genus Vireo and draws some inferences on the origin of sympatry among members of the group and encourages others to use the approach of comparative systematics in the study of subgeneric affinities.
Evidence Concerning the Function of Nocturnal Call Notes of Migratory Birds
TLDR
Analysis of the calls of caged birds exhibiting migratory restlessness and calls given by free flying migrants clearly indicate that for at least some passerine species the calls are communicatory.
Call Learning in the Carduelinae: Ethological and Systematic Considerations
TLDR
It is suggested that the ontogenetic, learned modification in call pattern can be eliminated from the taxonomic analysis, and that calls may then be taxonomically valuable behavioral characters.
DISCRETE VARIANTS OF EVENING GROSBEAK FLIGHT CALLS
Abstract We describe four discrete variants of the frequency-modulated flight calls of Evening Grosbeaks (Coccothraustes vespertinus) in the United States and southwestern Canada. Each call type is

TLDR
This study suggests that this crossbill complex contains several distinctive sibling species that breed sympatrically and show ecological differences.
