Song Performance and Social Mate Choice in Prairie Warblers

Principal Investigator(s):

Bruce E. Byers

Institution:

Department of Biology, University of Massachusetts

Project Term:

2009 - 2010

I am testing the prediction that female warblers prefer males whose singing is highly consistent, singing in which successive songs differ very little. I have previously found evidence of such a female preference in Chestnutsided Warblers (Dendroica pensylvanica), and during the breeding season of 2010, I collected data to determine whether a similar preference is present in Prairie Warblers (Dendroica discolor).
