Song development in the zebra finch and other estrildid finches

  title={Song development in the zebra finch and other estrildid finches},
  author={Klaus Immelmann},
Root crop cleaning apparatus including a pair of adjacent, counterrotating cleaning rolls arranged in root crop receiving relation, one of the rolls being formed by a plurality of resilient disks mounted on a shaft and maintained at equal axial distances by means of smaller diameter spacers interposed between each adjacent pair of resilient disks, and the other roll being formed by a plurality of axially extending rods connected to a shaft at equal radial distances from the shaft and at equal… Expand
The Morphological Identification of Domesticated Zebra Finches, Poephila-Guttata (Passeriformes, Estrilidae), in Australia
Discriminant analysis showed that wing length, tarsus length and bill depth were important in classifying individuals into groups, and differences between groups were attributed to the effects of domestication upon birds in aviaries. Expand
Variation in song structure within and among populations of Australian Zebra Finches
Song variation within and among colonies in a region occurred in the frequency of "labile" elements, despite resemblance in song structure between sons and their fathers, dispersal to and from colonies prevents the formation of colony-specific versions of the song. Expand
Early acquisition of song in the zebra finch, Taeniopygia guttata
Abstract Young zebra finch males were tested for their ability to acquire species-specific song before reaching independence. Song copies developed by males kept with their fathers up to 35 daysExpand
Early experience and plasticity of song in adult male zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata)
Zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) learn song primarily at 35-65 days of age, but birds deprived of experience at that stage may modify their songs later. Experiments on 5 groups examined the effectExpand
Song learning and mate choice in estrildid finches raised by two species
Abstract Male zebra finches, Taeniopygia guttata, and Bengalese finches, Lonchura striata, were raised normally or cross-fostered to the other species until 35 days of age and then housed until 70Expand
Song Learning in Zebra Finches (Taeniopygia guttata): Progress and Prospects
What is known about the song-learning system in zebra finches is described and ways in which the timing, accuracy, and selectivity of learning is affected by the environment that the young bird experiences during its development are suggested. Expand

Abstract Sons of wild zebra finches, Taeniopygia guttata , were studied for three breeding seasons at a colony in south-east Australia to determine if they learnt their fathers' songs and distanceExpand
Song tutor choice by zebra finches in aviaries
Abstract The social interactions and song learning of young male zebra finches, Taeniopygia guttata , were studied in two aviaries, each containing four breeding pairs and several other adult males.Expand
Song learning in the zebra finch (taeniopygia guttata): Selectivity in the choice of a tutor and accuracy of song copies
Abstract The aim of the study was to look for possible selectivity of song learning in the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata). Young males were provided with the opportunity to listen to two songExpand
Vocalizations in the genus Spinus
The call notes of Spinus lawrencei are higher in pitch and have a narrower frequency range than those of S. psaltria and S. tristis, indicating lack of selection pressure for species specificity and is advantageous in mixed flocks. Expand
