NOTES: (No. of Animals/Sex: Adult(s), male(s), female(s). Social Contact: Group. Breeding Status: Breeding. Behav. Context: Group contact.) Specimens taken from here and photographs show that there is a question as to the race. Both senegalensis and poliogaster occur and there are some individuals that appear neither, so more work is needed in this region. A male begins to sing when the cut is 1 min. 9 secs. so likely there were some pairs breeding as the singing at this time of day would indicate nesting and one individual showed strong reaction to playback of the song sequence. Note mimicry in song section. Field annotations are all included.
