[This is the Primary Song of BNA, consisting of Regularly Repeated Vocalizations 1 and 2 (RRV1, RRV2; see also Smith, W. J. 1970. Song-like displays of Sayornis species. Behaviour 37: 64-84). The 10 RRVs appear to represent primarily RRV1s, but with three RRV2s also given (0:045, 0:17, and 0:205). There is an odd echo that complicates identification of the song-elements. Quality unchanged (1-2 - but with above-noted echo [headphone leakage?]) - CAM - 4 April 2005]
