There were two adults and one (or two) young birds in the trees with the adults feeding the young. In one place (040-041) I have noted on the tape that the preceding recording sequence was a food begging to separate it from the whistle and the trill. I did not see which bird was vocalizing as I was recording, so it could be an adult giving a special feeding call to the young. I do know this is what I hear in an adult-young feeding situation--off the nest.
