Vocal-based monitoring is increasingly being used as a non-invasive method for identifying individuals within avian populations and is promising for the Siberian Crane, Leucogeranus leucogeranus. This is a poorly studied, long-lived, secretive and critically endangered bird species that breeds in the Arctic tundra of western and eastern regions of...
Article
Vocal development of cranes (Gruidae) has attracted scientific interest due to its special stage, voice breaking. During voice breaking, chicks of different crane species produce calls with two fundamental frequencies that correspond to those in adult low-frequency and juvenile high-frequency vocalizations. However, triggers that affect voice break...

Article
Full-text available
Chicks can convey information about their needs with calls. But it is still unknown if there are any universal need indicators in chick vocalizations. Previous studies have shown that in some species vocal activity and/or temporal-frequency variables of calls are related to the chick state, whereas other studies did not confirm it. Here, we tested...
Article
Full-text available
Despite a great number of empirical studies, the mechanisms of population differentiation and the factors that influence this process, particularly in seabirds, remain insufficiently understood. Here we analyzed population structure in the whiskered auklet (Aethia pygmaea), a previously poorly studied alcid species with unusual differentiation in c...
Article
Full-text available
The works on the comparison of social behavior of nonpasserine birds are rather rare; however, they are useful for insight into the general theoretical issues, such as the evolution of birds’ social behavior. The aim of this work is the quantitative comparison of the birds’ behavior on the colony surface and its dependency on different factors such...
Article
Full-text available
Zoo and wildlife management faces a problem with bird sexing, as many bird taxa have indiscernible gender differences in size and coloration. Problematic groups are geese, cranes, rails, raptors, owls, parrots, doves, auks, shearwaters and some passerines. Commonly accepted invasive sexing techniques based on genetics, laparoscopy, morphometric and...
Article
Full-text available
Begging behaviour is an important element in the parent-offspring conflict; it has been studied in many avian species. However, the majority of the studies have been entirely based on the call counts, and they agreed that vocal activity was a good indicator of chick's nutritional need and/or condition. Fewer researches were dedicated to the tempora...
Article
Full-text available
The effect of philopatry on the formation of the intrapopulation structure in the crested auklet colony of the Talan Island, Tauiskaya Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk, was examined. The nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial DNA control region fragment (408 bp) and five microsatellite loci (Apy03, Apy04, Apy06, Apy07, Apy10) in individuals from two st...
Article
Full-text available
Vocal individuality provides a method of personalization for multiple avian species. However, expression of individual vocal features depends on necessity of recognition. Here we focused on chick vocalizations of demoiselle, Siberian and red-crowned cranes that differ by their body size, developmental rates and some ecological traits. Cranes are te...
Article
Full-text available
Chicks can convey information about their needs in food through their calls. However, it is still unclear if there are any universal acoustic markers of chick’s hunger. Here we tested experimentally whether acoustic call variables of human�raised Siberian crane chicks (Grus leucogeranus) are related to their hunger level. All measured frequency par...

Full-text available
The vocal development of cranes (Gruidae) has attracted scientific interest due to a special stage, so-called voice breaking. During voice breaking, chicks produce both adult low-frequency and juvenile high-frequency vocalizations. The triggers that affect voice breaking are unknown. For the first time, we study the vocal development of the Demoise...
Article
Full-text available
Birds that do not possess vocal learning exhibit contrasting styles of vocal development. For some Anseriformes, Galliformes and Charadrii species, gradual changes of call-frequency variables throughout development have been reported, while for some Gruiformes, Procellariiformes and Coraciiformes species, the changes are jump-like. The distribution...

Crested auklet is a unique representative of the family Alcidae with a complex social behavior nesting in dense colonies with a size of up to one million individuals. Here we study specific individual features in their trumpet calls, loud vocalizations used by auklets as an advertising display. In 2008 and 2009, we recorded 231 calls of 24 individu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
It is usually assumed that individual recognition between parents and chicks develops when and where it is needed to restrict parental care to bird’s own offspring. Here, we tested this hypothesis on four related colonial seabird species of auks (Alcidae) that differ strongly in their nestling strategies. The first three studied species, the creste...
Article
Full-text available
Vocal plasticity due to changes of social context is well documented in passerine birds. In other bird species, the impact of social environment changes on the whole vocal structure and on individual specific signatures remains largely unexplored. Here, we assessed inter- and intra-season stability of specific features of individual signatures in a...
Article
Indicators of individual quality in ornamentation or in vocalizations have been reported for different animal species. However, no studies have jointly investigated ornamentation and vocalizations in one species. The crested auklet (Aethia cristatella, Alcidae) is a small colonial seabird of the North Pacific and is unusual for a bird in using opti...

Acoustic-based monitoring has proved useful for many birds and seems promising for the endangered red-crowned crane. However, its validity in crane conservation is unclear in the absence of knowledge concerning the long-term stability of pair-specific duets. The red-crowned crane is monogamous and long-lived, with stable pair bonding both within an...
Article
Full-text available
Distinctiveness of chicks’ calls may arise in ontogenesis when parents can confuse their own and alien chicks, leaving their nests and forming crèches or flocks. It is unknown, however, whether the individual vocal signature retains further in ontogenesis or relaxes when the necessity in the parental care disappears. In this paper, we study the int...
Article
Full-text available
Individual, sexual, and related differences in chirp calls of 14 red-crowned crane chicks were analyzed for each of three age periods covering both family-territorial and flock stages of the development of chicks. The calls were recorded at the Oka Crane Breeding Center of the Oka Biosphere State Nature Reserve in the summer-autumn periods of 2003–...
