Blackcap males sing differently to females than to other males


This video is about singing male blackcap.

This morning, Hans Slabbekoorn, who does research on bird songs at Leiden university, was interviewed on Dutch Vroege Vogels radio.

He told about research into songs by blackcap males. It turns out that, if a blackcap male sings to a female, there are more softer notes in the song. While, if he sings to another male, a potential rival, the songs have more louder notes.
