    Equipment Note

The recordist identified this subject as a young Anas cyanoptera with 90% confidence, but based on identification with Nathan Pieplow, the vocalizations in question appear to come from a male Anas crecca. As some doubt still exists as to which bird was recorded and whether or not young A. cyanoptera could make a similar sound, the subject has been changed to Anas sp. --Jay McGowan 13Aug2013
