An interesting study out of the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center in Durham, NC that birds such as vireos will modifying the pitch or length of their songs in response to growing noise pollution. Coincidentally, I also change my song in response to excessive noise: “Hey @$$face… I’m talking to you!” Same thing, right?
