Title Preference functions of female brown headed cowbirds for male multimodal signals
Downloaded 4 times
Description This is an excel file noting the three behaviors we examined during our mating trials: (1) whether females gave a copulatory solicitation display (CSD) to a given male, (2) the CSD duration and (3) the latency to begin a CSD. The file is organized chronologically so that the readers can see the experimental block, trial day, and experimental order on a given day for the females (i.e., birds) in the experiment. Male signals are described categorically, as high/low intensity visual display and high/low potency song and also continuously as song factor 1-3 and visual display factor 1-2. Finally, we have some descriptive data on each female, including her mass and her estrogen levels measured at the end of the experiment.
