... courtship displays( Prum, 1998 ). Morphologically,birds use diverse structures for sound production, and feather modifications have been described for many species known to sonate (overviews by Darwin, 1871 ; Manson-Barr and Pye, 1985 ; Prum,1998 ; Bostwick, in press ). The most extreme development...
