NOTES: This is the breeding pair. Odd "song" and call notes were given by what appeared to be the female of the pair (or possibly a second male?). This bird was at a distance of approximately 200' away and perched on a small, broken, horizontal limb approximately 2' above the grassy vegetation. A second bird, a male, then began to sing from a nearby tree giving a normal song during the second segment of this cut. This recording is of the same pair of Bachman's Sparrows as were recorded in MLNS 62936.
BNA: Primary Song from male as well as Chitter Call and Chip Calls from female. CZ 29/06/2004.
