PARAPHRASED 'KIK-KIK-KIK, KI-QUEEAH'.

FOLLOWING PLAYBACK SONGS GIVEN AT 2 OR 3 SECOND INTERVALS. LATTER PART OF FIRST 3 MINUTES WITHOUT PA

[This recording contains 67 examples of the "kicker" call, which is apparently NOT given only by females, as was suggested in BNA account (see above). Quality changed from 2-3, 1-2 to 2-3, 2 (but may approach 2-1 in places; BEST after 3:50, which is a playback response) - CAM - 8 April 2005]
