Data from: Hatching late in the season requires flexibility in the timing of song learning

Stefan Leitner, Johanna Teichel, Andries Ter Maat & Cornelia Voigt
Most songbirds learn their songs from adult tutors, who can be their father or other male conspecifics. However, the variables that control song learning in a natural social context are largely unknown. We investigated whether the time of hatching of male domesticated canaries has an impact on their song development and on the neuroendocrine parameters of the song control system. Average age difference between early- and late-hatched males was 50 days with a maximum of...
