    Equipment Note

Breeding Status: Territorial. Behav. Context: Annoyance, threat, distress. Sound Delivery Rate: Normal, high, agitated. Cover Density: Sparse.

Recordist's Note: "Lengthy recording of Common Snipe calls, aware of my presence in the bushes. First, alarm calls then less distressed, then further agitation. Some road noise to be edited out. Some operator noise to be edited out due to interference from the bushes. Note @215 (tape counter) "chuck a chuck a" probably nesting in the immediate area."

[These appear to represent primarily the "Chip" Calls of BNA, but given in a different context than those of most recordings available (nest defense?). Also, there are also a number of soft "chatters" that may represent the throaty, "hvaaa" calls to chicks noted in BNA (0:56-0:57, 1:41-1:42, 2:21-2:22 (GOOD), 2:36-2:38, 2:41-2:45 (two), 3:10-3:11, 3:55-3:57, 4:22-4:26 (two), and 4:32-4:33), in addition to one series of "Chipper" Calls (2:50-2:57). Quality added (2-3, 2) - CAM - 14 December 2004]
