Song postA point from which song is delivered. As advertisement is one of the functions of song, many song posts are in conspicuous positions and often at some height, as, for example, those used by the thrushes of the genus Turdus. Birds which have skulking habits, however, may have song posts which are low down and concealed, as in the case of the Nightingale Luscinia megarhynchos.
