Re: animal sound localization
owls are passive locators - so be sure you differentiate between these
... and you are asking about scientific
examples of such. FYI - There are observations of large whales
doing things - like counter-calling over long distances and then joining
up - that seem to have an explanation in this domain. Some of these have
been scientifically validated by playback experiments, but these are not
able to test vertical acuity. Whales also find food resources through
either active or passive acoustic localization in 3-space.

Subject: animal sound localization
Are there any examples of an animal (besides a dolphin) who can
sound sources in the vertical plane with the same (or similar or
acuity as the horizontal plane?
Are there any references to such a finding?
Thank you in advance.
