In these two experiments, the design meant that subjects could associate roles during an interaction with the location of a singing intruder. Peake et al. (2001) looked at whether similar associations could be made between roles and song features using a similar experimental paradigm in great tits. In this case interactions were carried out between two loudspeakers situated outside the territory boundary and thus in an area that subjects would be less willing to approach directly (Fig. 1di). Information extracted by subjects was then assayed by means of a third speaker placed well inside the subject’s territory, which broadcast songs of one of the interactants 15 minutes after the interaction (Fig.

The gap was in reality filled by a small aquarium that either was empty (allowing males to interact across the gap: the ‘real’ interaction; Fig. 2di) or contained two fish separated by an opaque partition such that each of the males viewed by the eavesdropper was, in fact, interacting with a fish that could not be seen (the ‘apparent’ interaction; Fig. 2dii). In the apparent interaction, the eavesdropper’s interpretation of the aggressive signals given by each visible male was decoupled from that male’s actual experience in his own interaction with a hidden fish.
