The Week contest: Bird song

This week's question: Scientists have identified the world's loudest bird: the male white bellbird of the Amazon rain forest, which has a squawk as loud as a pile driver. In its mating ritual, the male bellbird shouts its thunderous song directly into the face of a female. If there were a book about the bellbird's dating strategy, what could it be titled?
