urbanisation on bird behaviour. The chosen species for this investigation were willie wagtails ( Rhipidura leucophrys ) and magpie larks ( Grallina cyanoleuca ). Both bird species belong to the passerine order and occupy the same territory year round, a factor that was important to the data collection

rather than single intruders (Hall, 2000; Molles & Waas, 2006). In some species, such as the Australian magpie-lark ( Grallina cyanoleuca ), pairs respond more strongly towards the initiator of a two-bird vocalization bout (Rogers et al., 2004), but these re- sults are not specific to one sex or the

‘duets’ (de Silva et al., 2004). There is also evidence of relatively subtle song dimorphism in species in which both sexes learn songs. For example, northern cardinals ( Cardinalis cardinalis , Yamaguchi, 1998), rufous-and-white wrens ( T. rufalbus , Mennill & Vehrencamp, 2005) and Australian magpie-larks
