A mutual understanding? Interspecific responses by birds to each other's aerial alarm calls
Individuals are likely to benefit from responding to the alarm signals of other species with similar predators, and mutual interspecific responses to aerial (hawk) alarms are thought to be common in birds, in part because similarity in alarm call structure among species might facilitate detection or interpretation. However, there has been no test of whether interspecific responses to aerial alarm calls can involve mutual responses between species and only incomplete tests of the response of any...[Show more]
