- Do nestling calls actually attract predators?;
- How do parents warn young of danger without betraying nest location to predators?
- How do young reduce predation risk independently of parents?
I show that vocalizations by scrubwren young are indeed risky, that parents use strategic trade-offs when deciding whether to warn young, and that young learn to use a diverse range of cues about danger.
