[No, this is the two-note, "feeding" call described in BNA, but there also appear to be calls of Junco hyemalis, Passer domesticus, Carpodacus purpureus and possibly other species mixed in. Much of this appears to be the calls of junco. Quality added (2-3 - it is often difficult to separate Spizella from the other species) - CAM - 27 January 2005]
