    Equipment Note

LNS: In his paper data record, the recordist identified the subject of this recording as song and call of an adult male Euphagus cyanocephalus, with 100% confidence, by sight and sound. However, the most prominent sound in each segment of the recording is Agelaius phoeniceus; the first segment contains the "cheer" call, while the second segment contains male song. The subject of this recording is therefore changed to Agelaius phoeniceus, and the recordist's original information about age, sex, confidence in identification, and method of identification have been removed. -Matt Medler, 15 Aug 2012.

Bird was sitting in a small tree near a tiny stream. He stayed in the area during the two days I was there, though I didn't see the nest. His vocalizations, except for the chirps, I had not taped before.
