    Equipment Note

Whereas we found most black rails in the short grass this individual was singing from a patch of salt grass which was chest-high and of a different species from the regular habitat. This bird gave four-noted calls regularly. Bird captured and placed in retaining cage.

Weather: Wind.
Cover Density: Thick.

Same individual as ML 2836. See notes for that recording.

BNA: Seventy-four examples of the primary call given by this species in the breeding season (the "kickee-doo" call of BNA and others). Most calls have three parts, but some of those at the end have four. CAM - 7 April 2005
