    Equipment Note

NOTES: Beh. context: UNKNOWN;THIS BIRD WAS INITIALLY SINGING THE TYPICAL TRILL AND CALLING FROM A PINE BRANCH ABOUT 3M UP AND OVERHANGING THE FIELD. IT APPEARED TO BE BUILDING A NEST, ALTHOUGH NO NEST WAS APPARENT UPON CLOSER INSPECTION. IT THEN DROPPED DOWN TO THE GROUND AND ADDED THE GNATCATCHER-LIKE CALLS AS IT PICKED UP NEST MATERIAL, WHICH IT SOON DROPPED, AND AS IT FORAGED. SOON IT FLEW BACK UP INTO THE TREE AND CONTINUED VOCALIZING AS ITFORAGED. THROUGHOUT THIS EPISODE THERE WAS A SECOND NON-SINGING CHIPPING SPARROW, PRESUMABLY THE MATE, WHICH REMAINED WITHIN 6M OF THE APPARENT NEST SITE. SECOND GROWTH TREES AT EDGE OF OLD ALFALFA FIELD ON RIDGE. 1 ADULT(S); MALE?

BNA: Song is heard and possibly Alarm Calls at the very end of the recording. CZ 13/05/2004.
