Stable groups of stripe-backed wrens Campylorhynchus nuchalis occupy exclusive territories and perform stereotyped duets and choruses in the same contexts in which many individually territorial passerines sing. When duets are broadcast from a speaker just inside a group's territorial boundary, the principal pair in the subject group reacts much more strongly to playbacks of strangers' duets than neighbors' duets. In addition, they respond slightly more intensely to a neighbor's duet on the wrong side of the subject group's territory than to the same duet on the correct side of the territory. These results indicate that stripe-backed wrens can differentiate neighboring groups' duets and associate each with a customary direction. The duets of this species have nearly the same effects on territorial residents as do the advertising songs of passerines with individual territories.
