Might you be able to help explain some curious behavior I recently encountered?
A few weeks ago, at Sondermann Park in Colorado Springs, I thought I heard a male Lazuli Bunting (LAZB) singing. As I wasn't sure of my ID, I briefly played its song, which was similar but different from the one it had just sung. The male immediately appeared and sang the exact song I had just played.
When I heard a LAZB again the following week at Sondermann, I again briefly played the tape (I won't do it again, but I considered this research), and again it repeated the song I played.
