BNA: The male Song is heard, some of which includes vocal mimicry. For example, at about 30 seconds (or the 6th song), imitations of an American Robin, Western Tanager "Pit-ick" call and Towsend's Solitaire "Tew" Call can be heard. At 36 seconds (or the 7th song) the "pit-pit" (or gyp) notes of the Red Crossbill, the Western Tanager's "Pit-ick" call, possibly a junco call, and Towsend's Solitaire "Tew" Call are mimicked. Other species are possibly also mimicked. CZ 20/07/2004.
