New paper out: Noise source and individual physiology mediate effectiveness of bird songs adjusted to anthropogenic noise
I'm very excited to announce that another paper from my postdoctoral work in Canada came out last week in Scientific Reports. It is available open access and I'm very proud of the experiments we did for it. We looked at whether adjustments to noise in Savannah Sparrow songs were necessary and effective at two different types of oil well infrastructure. It turns out they were, but the necessity of these adjusted songs varied with the physiological state of the birds.
