Territorial songs in island populations of songbirds are often highly divergent from those of neighbouring continental relatives. This is shown for the three goldcrest subspecies (Regulus regulus azoricus, R. r. sanctae-mariae and R. r. inermis) endemic on six islands of the Azorean archipelago. All investigated populations display a high intra- and inter-individual acoustic variation. On each island, up to six different song types have been found; and a single male sings up to three types.

Radiation of Atlantic goldcrests Regulus regulus spp.: evidence of a new taxon from the Canary Islands
TLDR
As a taxonomic consequence of the marked differentiation of the two Canarian goldcrest clades the populations from El Hierro and La Palma are described as a taxon new to science and are named Regulus regulus ellenthalerae n. Expand
Geographical differentiation, acoustic adaptation and species boundaries in mainland citril finches and insular Corsican finches, superspecies Carduelis [citrinella]
TLDR
Acoustically, mainland citril and insular Corsican finches separate well in their contact calls and perch songs, which indicates that acoustic characteristics can evolve very quickly, not only on islands but also on the mainland. Expand
Geographic variation in coal tit song across continents and reduced species recognition between Central European and Mediterranean populations
TLDR
There is geographic variation in coal tit song across continents that coincides with reduced species recognition between Central European and Mediterranean populations. Expand
Territorial song does not isolate Yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella) from Pine Buntings (E. leucocephalos)
Western Palearctic Yellowhammer and eastern Palearctic Pine Bunting are considered a pair of young sister species. A huge area of sympatry is in western Siberia where they hybridize extensivelyExpand
Vocal behaviour of the island-endemic Cozumel Wren (Troglodytes aedon beani): song structure, repertoires, and song sharing
TLDR
The fine structural characteristics of male Cozumel Wrens songs are described, the first description of the songs and the vocal behaviour of this island-endemic bird is provided, and patterns of repertoire organiza- tion and song sharing are explored. Expand
Vocal behaviour of the island-endemic Cozumel Wren (Troglodytes aedon beani): song structure, repertoires, and song sharing
TLDR
The first description of the songs and the vocal behaviour of this island-endemic bird is provided, and the fine structural characteristics of male Cozumel Wrens songs are described, and patterns of repertoire organization and song sharing are explored. Expand
Phylogeography and genetic diversity of the Robin (Erithacus rubecula) in the Azores Islands: Evidence of a recent colonisation
TLDR
The results revealed that Robins from the Azores possess low genetic diversity and share their most common haplotype with Madeira and the Continental Western Palearctic Robins, which support the hypothesis of one recent founder event and a fast range expansion to most of the Azore Islands. Expand
The Taiwan Firecrest (Regulus goodfellowi) belongs to the Goldcrest assemblage (Regulus regulus s. l.): evidence from mitochondrial DNA and the territorial song of the Regulidae
TLDR
All results from molecular and acoustic analysis justify the species rank of the Taiwan endemic species and suggest that it is only distantly related to the firecrest clade. Expand
Genetic and morphometric diversity of the goldcrest (Regulus regulus) populations in the Azores.
TLDR
Within the Azores, there is evidence of historical and/or recent gene flow among the island's populations, revealing a lack of current genetic structure within the archipelago, indicating a recent expansion of goldcrests throughout the Archipelago and a low divergence in relation to continental Europe. Expand
Can Song Discriminate between Macgillivray's and Mourning Warblers in a Narrow Hybrid Zone?
TLDR
It is shown that the two species' songs are differentiated in allopatry but that songs converge in sympatry, with a weak and nonsignificant association between songs and diagnostic mitochondrial and nuclear genetic markers in the hybrid zone. Expand

SONGS OF BLUE TITS PARUS CAERULEUS PALMENSIS FROM LA PALMA (CANARY ISLANDS)—A TEST OF HYPOTHESES
TLDR
It is suggested that the uniform song repertoire of Parus major and Parus caeruleus palmensis was developed by adapting the already learned contact calls to each other, and the similarities to song types of P.c. major are due to convergence rather than character displacement. Expand
Lautäußerungen der Sommergoldhähnchen von den Inseln Madeira und Mallorca (Regulus ignicapillus madeirensis, R. i. balearicus)
TLDR
The vocal repertoire of two island populations of the Firecrest was studied and it was suggested that the reduction of learning opportunities which went along with the colonisation of Madeira is thought to be the main cause for the evolution of the Madeiran song type. Expand
Phylogeny and species limits in the Palaearctic chiffchaff Phylloscopus collybita complex: mitochondrial genetic differentiation and bioacoustic evidence†
TLDR
A phylogeny reconstructed from nucleotide sequences agrees with one based on song and some morphological characters in identifying P. brehmii as the oldest branch within the chiffchaff group, while the position of P. canariensis with respect to these two clades is uncertain. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC SIGNAL IN THE SONG OF CRESTS AND KINGLETS (AVES: REGULUS)
TLDR
It is concluded that syntax traits of whole verses or subunits of territorial song, especially innate song structures, are the most reliable acoustic traits for phylogenetic reconstructions in Regulus. Expand
Paraphyly of the Blue Tit (Parus caeruleus) suggested from cytochrome b sequences.
TLDR
The analyses clearly indicate that the Blue Tit represents a paraphyletic assemblage, including a European/Middle Asian clade that is the sister group to the Azure Tit (Parus cyanus) and a North African clade. Expand
Bird Song: Biological Themes and Variations
TLDR
The study of bird song focuses on how song develops, sexual selection and female choice, and themes and variations in time and space. Expand
Suggested experimental designs for song playbacks
TLDR
Several designs commonly used for playback or tutoring experiments are illustrated, and changes in design are suggested that would increase the number of independent samples and would thus improve the reliability and external validity of the experimental work. Expand
