The songs of many songbird species vary geographically, yet, the songs of black-capped chickadees (Poecile atricapillus) show remarkable consistency across most of the species’ North American range. Previous research has described subtle variations in the song of this species by comparing songs...
Chickadees are highmetabolism, nonmigratory birds, and thus an especially interesting model for studying how animals follow patterns of food availability over time. Here, we studied whether blackcapped chickadees (Poecile atricapillus) could learn to reverse their behavior and/or to...
