AbstractIn many songbirds, males vary certain aspects of their singing behavior when engaged in territorial interactions. Song rate, song type switching rate, song matching, song overlapping, and the usage of specific song types were proposed to be aggressive signals. It is well known that transitions between different song types in a song sequence are non-random in many species, but the signaling significance of non-random vocal streams is poorly understood. We asked whether singing plays a… Expand
