ONE IMMATURE CALLING FOR FOOD. FED BY ADULT ONCE DURING RECORDING PERIOD. SAT IN NEST, MOVING ABOUT OCCASIONALLY WITH SOME MOTION OF WINGS. RECORDING LOCATION WAS A SMALL WOODED ISLAND IN TIDAL RIVER SEPARATED FROM MAINLAND BY SALTMARSH. 3.2KM SSW OF ADAMSVILLE, RHODE ISLAND. [The location of 2 miles(3.2km) SSW of Adamsville, Rhode Island given on the original data form by Robert G. Ling is likely a misstatment as that would place the recording well away from the west bank of the west branch of the Westport River (also stated on the original data record by Ling who further describes the location as an island. The general direction of 2 miles SSE of Adamsville, RI does place the location on the west bank of the west branch and it is this that I have used to create an approximate map position.) G.
