I'm sure the work is fine, but reading such an abstract it is clear to me what gives so much modern science a bad name.
As an example, why don't we have a competition to replace '...have a plastic defense portfolio that can be acquired rapidly and deployed facultatively' with something that approaches what one might call English! The military would have been proud of those words, these are fairy wrens!
How about '...wrens can quickly and flexibly change their behaviour to defend their nests from Cuckoos' .
I am sure others can do better.
