NOTES: (General Climate: Arid. Gen. Hab: Baihyea forest. Cov. Density: Thick. Filtering: 140.) At marshy lake near side of main road south of Rundu.

[I am not completely clear which calls here were given by Gallinula, but the sharp "peep" call (presumably homologous to the Yelp of BNA) given almost throughout, but never really isolated, sounds more like this species than do the other calls. The calls at 1:07-1:09 are better isolated than most. The series at 0:14-0:17 may represent a series of Cluck Calls by this species [?] Quality added (3) - CAM - 2 March 2005]
