BNA: Possibly the "Chatter Call" is heard throughout the recording, as well as some drumming. Possibly some "Churr Calls" and some "Alarm Notes" may be heard. CZ 23/02/2004.

[Actually, these appear to be mostly "Alarm" Calls (sensu Bock et al. 1971, BNA), but interspersed with some "Churr" Calls (0:50-0:52, 1:10, 1:58-2:05, 2:19, 2:27, 2:35, 5:13-5:19 (probably the BEST set of these calls), 5:33-5:37, 5:42, 6:46, and 7:14-7:17). There are also two soft "Drums" (2:48-2:49, 4:06-4:07). This sounds almost like begging by young birds, though probably recorded too early in the season for flying young. Quality unchanged (1) - CAM - 10 December 2004]
