This paper presents a simulation of the behaviour of different species of birds, which share the same habitat, but manage to use different times of the day to sing their songs. Therefore, they avoid a vocal competition and improve the conditions to find a mate. Communicative agents are used to model the birds and their behavior. A simple set of rules is used to make the decisions when and how to change the time for the search for a mate. By incorporating damping and amplifying feedback loops the collective behavior of each species led the system to a solution which was favorable to all agents.
