NOTES: (Third Recordist: Marion Dorman. Breeding Status: Territorial paired. Behav. Context: Nest invitation. Gen. Climate: Dry. Cover Density: Sparse.) BNA: Repeated Vocalization "whit". Chatter Vocalization rambling series of closely linked low notes. mf

[These are the "Repeated Vocalizations" of BNA and W. J. Smith (1966. Communications and relationships in the genus Tyrannus.Publ. Nuttall Ornithol. Cl. 6). The calls after the announcement appear to be "Attack Vocalizations" (1:57-1:58) followed by begging calls, presumably given by one of the adults given that they were said to be nest-building. Apparently more "Attack Vocalizations" 2:22-2:24. Quality changed from 3 to 3-2 (much hiss) - CAM - 7 January 2005]
