|Goal||Map the distribution of yellowhammer dialects|
|Task||Record yellowhammer song on cellphone or digital camera|
|Where||Global, anywhere on the planet United Kingdom|
Project aims to compare distribution of yellowhammer dialects in the UK and in New Zealand, where were yellowhammers imported in the 19th century. Whether any new songs evolved during isolation is only one of the questions that intrigue us. The other is, whether current distribution of dialects reflects well the known history, reconstructed from the available information about introduction events (when, where and in which numbers were yellowhammers released) and about subsequent spread.
