NOTES: (Species Sound: frequent; Behavioral Context: courtship?, mate contact?, contentment?; General Climate: arid; Cover Density: sparse; Field Recorder: Nagra E #461; General Habitat: edge between open field and pine forest)

BNA: The male song is heard with possibly elements of mimicry (pit-ick or pit-er-ik call of Western Tanager). Some soft calls are heard, but I am not sure of what they are. There are also several louder calls which may be of a different species, possibly Western Kingbird calls (from about 26 seconds-38 seconds) CZ 20/07/2004.

[There is only one, decapitated song here in addition to several calls that do not quite match anything described in BNA account (e.g., 0:06, 0:13, 0:17, 1:04, 1:10, 1:14, 1:19, 1:25, and 1:28). The lone song (0:48-0:52) ends with imitations of at least Piranga ludoviciana (call), Colaptes auratus (peeeur), and possibly, the call of Myadestes townsendi. Quality changed from 3 to 2-3 - CAM - 7 February 2005]
