Article summary

A study of the song of the Reed Bunting was begun in 1980 with the object of showing the dialectal phenomena resulting from the particular distribution of this bird in Belgium. Indications are given concerning the system of individual recognition, the evolution of song during the breeding season and the similarity in repertories between the males of one small region. This survey shows that with the more or less systematic destruction of wetlands, there is a risk of causing the disappearance of these regional particularities by disturbing the geographical distribution of the individuals.
