NOTES: Calls and foraging sounds of adult male at nest site. Nestlings can be heard chattering in background. This is the same nest at LNS 132223, which was recorded in mono. MS pair rigged on tripod and placed 2m below nest cavity., which was about 5m off the ground in a roadside spruce tree. It took a while for the adult to get used to the microphones, thus the first segment is an extended series of calls from a nearby adult with food in its bill. Subsequent sequences are short food delivery calls. The adult never lingered at the nest like it did while I was using a parabole (LNS 132223). In the last sequence, the adult can be heard flying in and out of the cavity. The noise level from the nestlings increases dramatically when the adult arrives and decreases as it leaves.
