Animals use many different methods to produce communication signals even within a single sensory modality. For example, sounds may be produced by the passage of air through special organs as in the mammalian larynx and avian syrinx, by rubbing appendages against each other like insect legs and wings, and by striking objects in the environment as in woodpeckers.
