    The morphology of the avian syrinx varies substantially between different taxa and shows a high degree of specialization in oscine songbirds (e.g., King, ), although little of this morphological variability can be linked to specific features of a species’ vocal repertoire (Gaunt, ).

    ‘The pied flycatcher is a small Palearctic migrant passerine bird.’ ‘Methods.-The Pied Flycatcher is a small, migratory, philopatric, and hole-nesting passerine bird of European woodlands.’ ‘The diversity of speckling is most pronounced in passerine birds (the perching or songbirds that make up 60 percent of all bird species).’. Tityridae is family of suboscine passerine birds found in forest and woodland in the Neotropics. The approximately 30 species in this family were formerly spread over the families Tyrannidae, Pipridae and Cotingidae (see Taxonomy). As yet, no widely accepted common name exists for the family, although Tityras and allies and Tityras, Mourners and allies have been used. They are small to medium.

    Except for the architecture of the syrinx and feet, passerines are remarkably similar in morphology. Differences in the syrinx have allowed for two generally recognized suborders, Tyranni (suboscines) and Passeri (oscines). However, beyond these large suborders, classification has .   Results: The morphology of the syrinx, hyoid and larynx of C. casuarius is described from CT scans. The syrinx is of the simple tracheo-bronchial syrinx type, lacking specialised elements such as the pessulus; the hyoid is relatively short with longer ceratobranchials compared to epibranchials; and the larynx is comprised of entirely.

A passerine is any bird of the order Passeriformes, which includes more than half of all bird mes known as perching birds or songbirds, passerines are distinguished from other orders of birds by the arrangement of their toes (three pointing forward and one back), which facilitates perching, amongst other features specific to their evolutionary history in : Psittacopasserae.

Griffiths, Syringeal Morphology and the Phylogeny of the Falconidae, The Condor, /, 96, 1, (), ().Cited by: The syrinx (Greek σύριγξ for pan pipes) is the vocal organ of birds.

Located at the base of a bird's trachea, it produces sounds without the vocal folds of mammals. The sound is produced by vibrations of some or all of the membrana tympaniformis (the walls of the syrinx) and the pessulus, caused by air flowing through the syrinx.

Passeriform - Passeriform - Form and function: The single feature that distinguishes passerines from all similar birds is their “perching” foot. In this foot type, all four toes are well developed and free from one another; in some families (wrens and most suboscines), the front toes may be partially fused at the base, but the distal portions (extremities) are functionally free.

The syrinx, rather than the larynx, is the bird’s vocal organ (Düring et al., ). It is a mechano-muscular valve situated deep in the thoracic cavity at the junction of trachea and primary bronchi.

A passerine is a bird of the order Passeriformes, which includes more than half of all bird mes known as perching birds or, less accurately, as songbirds, the passerines form one of the most diverse terrestrial vertebrate orders: with over 5, identified species, it has roughly twice as many species as the largest of the mammal orders, the Rodentia.

The paper presents an overview of the current state of studying the phylogeny and evolution of the largest taxonomic group of birds—the order Passeriformes. Phylogenetic relationships and problems of the classification of passerines according to the data of morphological and molecular studies are discussed.

All the results on this issue obtained during the past 25 years are considered. Here, I present a data set including eight measurements of the external morphology of species, roughly one‐quarter of all passerine birds (Aves: Order Passeriformes), from all parts of the world, characterizing the relative proportions of the wing, tail, legs, and beak.
