hello everyone,

we all know that songbirds choose their mates based on song, often based on
fleeting acoustic features that most people don't notice. but song is
important! so i thought i'd share this piece about urban songbirds --
eastern wood pewees, to be exact -- and how automobile traffic noises
affect their song. interesting findings when you think about conservation:
