Duetting is a form of animal communication in which two individuals produce temporally coordinated vocal signals. Describing the individual-level patterns of behaviour that structure duets is an integral step towards understanding the adaptive function(s) of duet participation. We investigated the fine scale timing of duet contributions in male and female black-bellied wrens, Pheugopedius fasciatoventris, by analysing recorded duets and by stimulating birds to ‘duet’ with recorded songs in the… CONTINUE READING
