NOTES: (Backgrnd: waves; Range Status: Migration; Breeding Status: Not territorial, Not breeding; General Climate: Cyclic wet-dry)

[This is clearly conversational "twittering" or "chattering" of some shorebird species, but I cannot be certain how many of these calls are those of Calidris alba. There do appear to be at least some "wick" calls, suggesting that C. alba was present. I can also hear some very thin "siip" notes that sound like the calls of C. fuscicollis. The "three-noted" calls mentioned in the voice announcement are those of Tringa melanoleuca not Limnodromus griseus. Quality changed from 3 to 2-3 - CAM - 22 February 2005]
