    Equipment Note

NOTES: Recorded in middle of campground, with bird initially seen 6-8 m away and 6 m up in live oak, but then moving upward and backward into pines until 25-30 m away and 20 m up (mid-way up larger pines); most of the ÒwhitÓ calls appeared to be given by a second bird; soon after I made this recording, we saw one of these two birds sit on a nest that was within 50 m of where bird had been singing; nest was ca. 18 m (half-way) up in a vertical crotch of a large Chihuahuan Pine in middle of campground; unclear whether singing bird or calling bird sat on nest because bird stopped singing before we found the nest; intermittent breeze. [There are 12 song-like phrases here, all but one representing the simple "chee-lick" described in BNA; by contrast, the phrase at 2:11 appears to be a more complex "chee-lick chou" with a terminal trill. Four "pit" calls given at the end of this recording appear to have been given by the singing bird, but the numerous calls given earlier were by a second bird, probably the singing bird's mate. Quality changed from 1-2, 2 to 2-1, 2 - CAM - 7 September 2005]
