NOTES: Varied daytime song. Almost entire song bout from perch, one or perhaps two songs missed during this perch. At 5:15 into the recording one hears a subtle clunk with a wooden quality to it. This clunk is the bird launching itself from the very tip of the snag. This "clunk" is heard many times throughout the recording as the bird launches itself to hawk an insect and again upon its return to the tip of the beech. It begins to sing almost immediately from another perch. Bird perched in top of small beech tree (~18' high). Omnidirectional microphone was taped to the tree trunk approximately 4' below the tip. Recorded 2 miles South of Route 13.

[This bird alternates between "Song Forms" 1 and 2 of BNA, giving numerous examples of both. There also appears to be some "wing-fluttering" when the bird sallied out and soft "churk" or "twitter" calls (e.g., 0:40, 12:05, 12:29). Quality changed from 2-1 to 2-1, 2 (good signal but with road noise in background, also vireo prominent in second part) - CAM - 5 January 2005]
