To ensure survival, some unique features can be distinguished in birds that help them maintain reproduction. These features include the ability to store sperm for long periods within the utero-vaginal junction, a high sperm concentration per ejaculate, and polyspermy fertilization. Sperm face many challenges prior to fertilization. After copulation, most ejaculated sperm exit the female reproductive tract, and less than 1% continue in an attempt to achieve fertilization. In addition, egg size is substantially larger than sperm size because of the presence of the egg yolk. This results in a large number of sperm penetrating the egg away from the oocyte. These challenges have triggered evolutionary changes to maintain the existence of many species, such as the enormous relative size of the testis, which produces billions of sperm each day, and the ability to store viable sperm for long periods in the oviduct to ensure asyn-chronous fertilization. This chapter discusses several contemporary and sometimes controversial points regarding sperm behavior and their storage in the oviduct.
