[Seven examples of Primary Song, as described in BNA account. There are two song-types represented here, with the bird switching types after the first song. The second song-type is not too different from those in LNS #15051-15053, which were recorded in South Carolina and represent a different subspecies (A. m. macgillivraii). This is one of few recordings that I found that at least appears to include a bird switching song-types in the middle. In almost every other recording with multiple song-types, switches of song-type occur during stop-starts, so one cannot determine unequivocally that all songs were given by the same bird. This represents A. m. maritimus based on range. Quality unchanged (2 - though approaching 2-1 in places) - CAM - 17 March 2005]
