Obtaining copulation solicitation displays in female canaries without estradiol implants

Abstract

Female domesticated canaries (Serinus canaria) respond to conspecific song with copulation solicitation display (CSD) between 22 and 27 days after their first offspring has hatched. This period could be used to investigate the acoustical preferences of female canaries. This non-invasive method respects the natural reproductive cycle and could be an alternative to the invasive method of estradiol implants.
