NOTES: SEVERAL BIRDS. THIS CUT WAS MADE FROM A BLIND WHERE THE BIRDS COULD NOT SEE ME. SOUNDS: THE TYPICAL 'ER-WIDE-AH' CALL CONTINUOUSLY REPEATED THROUGHOUT THE COLONY; ONE WARNING 'GERR-UK' CALL DIRECTED AT ANOTHER BIRD; ONE 'WIDEAWAKE' CALL; AND A CLUCKING SOUND WHICH MAY BE A COMMUNICATIVE SOUND BETWEEN MATES OR BETWEEN PARENT AND CHICK. SPECIMEN COLLECTED BY D. V. MERTON AND LOCATED AT THE DOMINION MUSEUM.
