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....

All other options except C have illogical comparison .
C compares female birds of most species with female alpine accentors

"Unlike" can only be used to compare nouns(Unlike X, Y), now look at the non underlined part to find out what is being comparedand you will find that we are comparing "female alpine accentors" with something.

A. the way song is used by female birds of most species, -> can't compare the way song with noun female alpine ancestors

B. most species,with female birds that use their song -> same problem

C. female birds of most species,which use their song -> this is correct as now we are comparing female birds with female alpine ancestors

D. the use of song by female birds of most species,which is -> same problem as A

E. in most species,in which song is used by female birds -> here we are comparing the characteristics of a species with Female alpine ancestors
