Zebra Finch Song Archive
Zebra finch song learning is studied as a potential model for human speech acquisition. Young male birds are tutored by adults and learn to sing a song that closely resembles that of their tutor. In the Zebra Finch Song Archive, visitors can listen to the songs of 83 male zebra finches whose ancestry has been traced to a single pair. Thus, visitors to the site can explore the similarities and differences of the songs as they are passed from generation to generation. If you are unfamiliar with zebra finches or their songs, the website does contain some background information to these birds and their song learning in addition to the song files themselves. The information on the site is organized in a number of ways, including a family tree that users can explore by clicking on specific individuals.
