We studied the extent to which male American Redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla) share songs in their repertoires. Examining samples of songs from three locations in New Brunswick, Canada, we found significant heterogeneity in the frequencies of the different songs across the locations. The extent to which neighbors shared songs related to increasing repertoire size (mean 4.4 songs/adult male). In the relatively larger sample at St. Andrews, neighboring adult males shared significantly more song… Expand
Repertoire size and song sharing among American Redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla) at the University of Michigan Biological Station.
Among many passerine species, repertoire size for a given adult male is thought to directly impact fitness as a result of myriad evolutionary pressures. Recent evidence suggests, however, that theExpand
HIGH LEVEL OF SONG SHARING IN AN EASTERN POPULATION OF SONG SPARROW (MELOSPIZA MELODIA)
TLDR
Investigating another population of the eastern subspecies of Song Sparrows to determine whether higher song-sharing levels existed within its range suggested that the eastern and western subspecies may not differ genetically in the way they learn songs, because song- sharing levels and song learning in the population were more similar to those of the western sub species than to those within its own subspecies.

Songs of American Redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla): Sequencing Rules and their Relationships to Repertoire Size
TLDR
The results generally favor competition models, although some sequential dependencies may also apply, and hierarchical organization in the serial repertoires of American redstarts may reflect developmental influences rather than effects of repertoire size itself. Expand
Female mate choice and songbird song repertoires
TLDR
It is proposed that song repertoires have generally arisen not through selection for repertoire size per se, but rather as a by-product of social conditions that favoured the evolution of complex signalling systems. Expand
SONG SHARING BY YELLOW WARBLERS DIFFERS BETWEEN TWO MODES OF SINGING: IMPLICATIONS FOR SONG FUNCTION
Abstract I investigated the pattern of song sharing for the two singing modes (Type I and Type II) of Yellow Warblers (Dendroica petechia). There is indirect evidence that males use Type I singing toExpand
SINGING BEHAVIOR VARIES WITH BREEDING STATUS OF AMERICAN REDSTARTS (SETOPHAGA RUTICILLA)
TLDR
It may be possible to identify unpaired male American Redstarts by their high singing rates of exclusively Repeat songs, which suggests that surveys based on aural detections may be biased in favor of unpaired males. Expand
The Singing Behaviour of Yellow Warblers
TLDR
Yellow warblers (Dendroica petechia aestiva) have a repertoire of songs divided into a single Type I song and a group of Type II songs, which seem to be male-female and male-male signals, respectively. Expand
The song structure and seasonal patterns of vocal behavior of male and female bellbirds (Anthornis melanura)
TLDR
Female bellbirds exhibited significant singing behavior and sung songs of complex structure and variety that parallel male song, which provides a quantitative foundation for further research of song in bellbirds and in particular the function of female vocal behavior. Expand
Different responses to different song types in American redstarts
TLDR
It is known that territorial males respond aggressively when songs are played to them within their territories, and song is an effective territorial deterrent, and the intersexual function has also been convincingly demonstrated. Expand

Song Types in a Population of Great Tits (Parus Major): Their Distribution, Abundance and Acquisition By Individuals
TLDR
This 6-year study of song acquisition in a marked population of great tits suggests that songs are learned both before and after dispersal, songs are not learned from fathers and size of repertoire is not related to male age. Expand
Ecological Consequences of Song Matching: Breeding Success and Intraspecific Song Mimicry in Indigo Buntings
TLDR
Increased success of song mimics apparently resulted from matching the adult neighbor's song and not simply from a behavioral maturation of song learning, and cannot be explained by variation in body size, time of arrival, or habitat. Expand

Sequences of song in chaffinches
TLDR
It is suggested that competition between song types for expression is a more important influence on their sequence than direct effects between successive songs, and that, in these cases, a single type may be controlled by two separate systems. Expand

TLDR
Using an electrophoretic analysis of alloenzymes, populations of Nuttall's white-crowned sparrows in California and populations of the mountain white-Crown (Z. oriantha) in Colorado were investigated to determine if song dialects were correlated with genetic differentiation. Expand
The Relation Between Organization and Function of Song in Cardinals
TLDR
The peculiarities of the organization of song in cardinals are interpreted as reflecting a feed-back system by which homoeostasis of the territorial system is maintained, and as such it permits the co-ordination of the singing of two individuals. Expand
