SummaryAuditory tuning curves of a small songbird, the great tit (Parus major), and of its principal avian predator, the European sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus), were determined by an operant positive reinforcement conditioning procedure, using the method of constant stimuli. Thresholds were measured by the criterion of a 50% correct response and a d′ of 1.5 for intra- and interspecific comparison, respectively. The best frequency of both species was 2 kHz, the hawk being 6.5 dB SPL more… Expand
