Convergent vocal strategies of males and females are consistent with a cooperative function of duetting in Australian magpie-larks

Hall, Michelle

The relationship between the form and function of coordinated acoustic signals is poorly understood. The coordination of signals by male and female birds to produce duets could be a cooperative display or a consequence of conflict between the sexes. Australian magpie-larks (Grallina cyanoleuca) produce antiphonal duets that function primarily in cooperative territorial defence.
