[In addition to "shorebird chatter," much of which was apparently given by Calidris pusilla and C. minutilla, there is one song by C. alpina (at 0:24, with 0:00 set at beginning of recording rather than beginning of annoucnement), this apparently preceded by two Rhythmically Repeated Calls (following Miller (1983. Auk 100: 440-451) and BNA account). There is also at least one "krree" call (at 0:55). The length of this recording is 1:15 NOT 0:55 as indicated. Quality unchanged (2-3) - CAM - 22 February 2005]
