NOTES: "...recorded from 1100hr to 1500hr. In this particular case the bird was remote miked, and the microphone was placed approximately 1 to 1.5 decimeters from the bird. This song perch was adjacent to a feeding station and the male was aggressively chasing other hummingbirds and returning to this perch to sing and give alarm notes."
