    Equipment Note

Flock was perched in a Capparis decidua bush 1m off ground, and slowly flew down one by one where they started foraging on the ground. One kept a lookout the whole time. They are giving small whistle-like alarm or contact calls. A motorcycle drove by and they flew away.

ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Turdoides caudata caudata to Turdoides caudata to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
