Male Saccopteryx bilineata produces complex audible vocalizations during the day while defending roost territories within the buttress cavities of trees. To determine the amount of variability in the vocal repertoire and how this variation is apportioned among geographic locations and individuals within colonies, we recorded daytime vocalizations of male S. bilineata at 4 colonies on the island of Trinidad. Using visual discrimination, we identified 21 simple syllables and 62 composite… CONTINUE READING
