Science News Online (6/5/99): The Search for Animal Inventors

Sandra L. Gaunt , from the same lab , is working on dialects in Costa Rica's green violet-ear hummingbird.When males want romance , they usually gather in clusters of two to six birds to sing and show off.All the birds within a cluster produce the same courtship song.Each cluster , or lek , however , has a different dialect , although to human ears the songs all are very monotonous and staccato , according to Gaunt.So many leks and so much new music may have arisen because no lek can get very large , Gaunt speculates.A male does not just sing over the notes of his competitors.He slips the phrases of his song into the slight pauses in theirs.As the males sing together , they speed_up , making it especially tricky to coordinate notes.More than six birds interweaving their songs would crash into each other acoustically.Sandra L.
