Previous work in songbirds has delimited a neural system responsible for song production and control. Earlier studies have suggested that functional capacity in the song system may be related to the mass of the system in an animal's brain, and that adult plasticity in this neural system may be related to adult capacity for behavioral modification. We now test these hypotheses in adult red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus), a species in which song is produced primarily by males, new song… CONTINUE READING
