NOTES: (Breeding Status: territorial unknown; Frequency of Sound: normal, high; General Climate: dry; Cover Density: medium) First part of recording made of "undisturbed" bird perched in oak at edge of road; later part of "disturbed" bird after presenting playback of first part. During playback the bird remained silent, flying back and forth past recorder. After stopping playback, the bird settled down and began a soft call, followed by whisper song, which led into normal song. Only the final part was recorded.
BNA: Song (or maybe Subsong) is heard. CZ 29/03/2004.
