    Equipment Note

NOTES: [I believe this recording combines "Song" with "Aggressive-excitement" calls, as described in Cramp et al. (1983. Handbook of the birds of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa: the birds of the Western Palearctic. Oxford University Press, Oxford). The well-defined series of notes in the first part of the recording 0:06-1:10 appear to represent songs (and do those at 2:055-2:10, 3:00-3:055, 3:14-3:175, 4:15-4:19, 4:43-4:45, 5:305-5:345, 5:48-5:535), but I suspect that the overlapping "rattles" by multiple birds (1:355-1:405, 2:255-2:34, 4:26-4:33, and 6:065-7:15) are instead aggressive-excitement calls. Quality added (2-3 - rumble from river) - CAM - 22 February 2005]
