    due to noise pollution, songbirds sing differently in urban areas

    One mistake in the article is that songbirds sing to attract mates. Actually they sing to mark territory. An important distinction. It might be urban birds just need to sound more aggressive to keep their territories.

    Among that group, the great tits in Amsterdam are perhaps the most easily studied. ;)

    only because they're most commonly found in a natural habitate illuminated by red light.

    Just like typical New Yorkers, brash, higher pitched, and yelling at each other for no apparent reason.

    (Just had to get that off my chest)

    A gentle squeeze, and a little mouth-to-tit resuscitation will have them singing like their old selves in no time.
