Common Gallinule (American)
Gallinula galeata [galeata Group]
William W. H. Gunn

- Avery Island
NOTES: [I believe that the calls in the first part of this recording represent mostly the Squawk described in the BNA account, but with what may be three Yelp Calls at 0:16, 0:21, and 0:24. I suspect that the last part contains a series of Cluck Calls (3:09-3:19). I am not sure how to categorize the calls at 1:03-1:12, nor many of those at 1:34-2:22. Quality changed from 2-3 to 3-2, 2-3 (a weak signal at first and much rumble throughout) - CAM - 2 March 2005]
LNS: Subject changed from Gallinula chloropus to G. galeata to reflect current taxonomy. -Matt Medler, 14 Sept 2011.
