Extremely loud mating songs at close range in white bellbirds
TLDR
It is proposed that bellbird females balance an interest in sampling males at close range with a need to protect themselves from hearing damage, and is found that song amplitude in bellbirds is context-dependent: when a female was on the display perch, a male bellbird sang only his louder song type. Expand
Screening large audio datasets to determine the time and space distribution of Screaming Piha birds in a tropical forest
TLDR
Signal processing techniques are developed to reveal the spatio-temporal dynamics of an emblematic bird voice of the neotropical forest: the song of the Screaming Piha (Lipaugus vociferans), suggesting that ScreamingPiha birds tend to avoid non-mature primary forests. Expand
Estradiol Selectively Enhances Auditory Function in Avian Forebrain Neurons
TLDR
It is demonstrated that functionally distinct classes of anatomically overlapping forebrain neurons are differentially regulated by sex steroid hormones in a dose-dependent manner. Expand
Individual Variation and Lek-Based Vocal Distinctiveness in Songs of the Screaming Piha (Lipaugus Vociferans), A Suboscine Songbird
Abstract One long-standing ornithological paradigm holds that song learning in oscine songbirds has a cultural component, whereas suboscine songbirds inherit songs genetically. Recent studies revealExpand
Echolocation at high intensity imposes metabolic costs on flying bats
TLDR
It is demonstrated that above 130 dB sound pressure level (SPL, at a reference distance of 10 cm), the costs of sound production become exorbitantly expensive for small bats, placing a limitation on the intensity at which they can call. Expand
Song amplitude and population density in two sympatric warblers, Phylloscopus schwarzi and P. fuscatus
TLDR
The analysis of video-recordings revealed the larger extension of the neck region (‘throat sac’) in Radde’s Warbler than in Dusky Warbler, which was hypothesised to be responsible for the louder song of Raddes Warbler. Expand
To Shout or to Whisper? Strategies for Encoding Public and Private Information in Sound Signals
TLDR
To make sound communication public or private, the sender must try to overcome the limitations of the environment, whereas to make the sound signals private the sender could make use of these limitations to reduce the size of the active space. Expand
Idiosyncratic responses of Amazonian birds to primary forest disturbance
TLDR
This work investigates species-specific responses of 44 forest-associated bird species with different behavioural traits to forest disturbance in 171 transects distributed across 31 landscapes in two regions of the eastern Brazilian Amazon and advocates the utility of using species-level analyses to complement community-wide responses in order to uncover highly variable and species- specific responses to environmental change that remain so poorly understood. Expand
Seasonal Plasticity of Precise Spike Timing in the Avian Auditory System
TLDR
The results suggest that high-resolution temporal discharge patterns may provide a plastic neural substrate for sensory coding in Gambel's white-crowned sparrow, a songbird that shows pronounced seasonal fluctuations in circulating levels of sex-steroid hormones. Expand

Songs of a Nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) were recorded in front of the bird (on-axis) and simultaneously at various off-axis angles. The pattern of sound radiation in the horizontal planeExpand
Pattern amplitude is related to pattern imitation during the song development of nightingales
TLDR
The consistent pattern- and phase-related differences in sound level indicate that the control of vocal amplitude should be viewed as an integrative part of the vocal learning process. Expand
Avian dependence on sound pressure level as an auditory distance cue
TLDR
Measurements of call-source SPL and distance errors suggest that towhees assess auditory distance partly from the difference between perceived SPL and source SPL, determined from spectrotemporal variables. Expand
