NOTES: (Breeding Status: Territorial, breeding. Response to Playback: Same call type (response). Behav. Context: Threat, male nest parasite in extended response of short seq. of playback. Visual Display: Described in notes, verbally on tape, and in [recordists'] publications. Gen. Climate:Arid, cyclic wet-dry. Gen. Habitat: Bushed woodland. Cover Density: Open, medium.) Field annotations are included. These displays will be described in our publications. They involve the head and breast being puffed and fluffed. The bowing call often is heard when there is a female present. Also as now in an aggressive response to playback. The "prew" call is heard in males interactions. The rings of this individual were actually yellow/yellow, not y/or. adult male.
Playback was the initial stimulus but the extended calling that ensued was not further stimulated until later in the cut after bowing call sequence. It was response to playback of the same type of call from same species.
