I have never found Ian Thomas’ own account in print or videos, and I have never been able to attend a con­cert of his, dur­ing which he might have told the story behind the song. Previous studies had hinted, but had not clearly established, that song-matching is a threat signal. He has a repertoire of eight to 10 songs that he uses to attract mates, post his territory, communicate with neighbors, and, as in the newest study, threaten an intruder.
To feign an intruder, they perched a stuffed song sparrow in a bush or tree and played the recorded song. Believing the song to come from a hidden aggressor close to their home turf, the provoked bird sang and approached the speaker.
At the same time, the researchers uncovered the stuffed sparrow just above the speaker, with its beak posed as if it was singing. Wing waving, a vigorous vibrating of one wing at a time, likewise looks harmless enough, but it too is an assertive signal.
