The two species of choughs' ranges. Note that there isn't much overlapping. *Green: Red-billed Chough *Yellow: Alpine Chough *Orange: Both species

Having overlapping ranges [1].

ExamplesEdit

  • William C. Dilger studied five species of N. American thrushes - Wood Thrush, Veery, Hermit Thrush, Swainson's Thrush and Grey-cheeked Thrush - in which males cannot be distinguished outwardly from the females, and discovered that the males and females recognised each other by their behaviour[2]. He also concluded that the songs and calls of the male thrushes, that are different in each species, were the primary signs by which females recognised males of their own kind[2][3].
