C looks the most appropriate to me though I am not so sure about the use of 'which' in it.

Only C does the right comparison.

Correct idiomatic usage of Like /Unlike is -

Unlike/Like X , Y

(C) is correct because it uses correct idiomatic usage -

Unlike female birds of most species,which use their song, to warn other birds away from their territory or their mate, female alpine accentors sing to attract potential mates.

Hence (C) is correct...

Why option A is wrong?

Unlike the way song is used by female birds of most species, to warn other birds away from their territory or their mate, female alpine accentors sing to attract potential mates.

Here the comparison is between the way song and female alpine accentors which is incorrect comparison....

Hi Skywalker18,
C looks the best option as it compares correctly. But, I am speculative about the use of which here. Don't you think who makes sense instead of which.

Unlike female birds of most species,which use their song
