NOTES: BNA: Call type II.
LNS Note: Unbroken cut with internal recordist announcement gain change (MJA,8Feb2005).

[This represents primarily the "Zhee-Zhee-Zhee" Call of BNA, or the Type II vocalization of Atwood (1988. Ornithological Monograph 42), though this is probably best considered the species' song. Two birds countersinging, both recorded here in separate parts. There is a Scold/Type I vocaliation at 3:42, a "Ti-Ti-Ti-Ti" Call/Type IV vocalization at 3:50, and more "Zhee-Zhee-Zhee" Calls after 3:55. The last part, possibly recorded during an aggressive encounter, combined "Ti-Ti-Ti-Ti" Calls, "Zhee-Zhee-Zhee" Calls, and some soft churring/scold calls unlike those described in BNA. Quality added (2-3, 2) - CAM - 21 December 2004]

ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Polioptila melanura melanura to Polioptila melanura to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
