The musical bird family

4 posts in this topic

It goes a little something like this: A young male zebra finch, whose father taught him a song, shared that song with a brother, with the two youngsters then creating new tunes based on dad’s signature sound.

The musical bird family, described in the latest Biology Letters, strengthens evidence that imitation between siblings and similar-aged youngsters facilitates vocal learning. The theory could help to explain why families with multiple same sex siblings, such as the Bee Gees and the Jackson 5, often form such successful musical groups.

Cool study. ... Siblings do often sound especially good together.. they have sort of matching vocal chords ? I really love old mountain/bluegrass family groups too , especially brothers.. their harmonies sound SO great together. !*
