Song type 1 = SO-SOO-la; 2 = SO-SO-LA; 3 = SO-LAA.
The first phrase (~ type 1) was recorded 17 Sept and is the same as the first phrase in Cut FL-5, a) here copied again on 175 tape. Quality: 3. Level: 0.
The other phrases, also type 1, recorded in same place late AM of 14 Sept, sound very similar but may be of a different bird. I notice a slight difference in the third figure especially. Quality: 3. Level: +3, -3. Copy N-4.2 to N-IV on 175 tape.
About 9:00 AM of 14 Sept I went into woods to a position close to where the type 1 bird of Cut FL-5 sang yesterday. I whistled the ~ short type 1-2 phrase [recordist drew a representation of the phrase here: one long line followed by two dots which were next to and a bit higher than the line] (like that given by bird of Cut FL-11) and very shortly a bird decoyed silently to me and was collected (#45 = male #8849). This bird appraoched from the east and I suspect may have been a bird I heard on several occasions between this place and the site of the bird of Cut FL-6; its voice was similar to the one I whistled, as I recall.
Then a couple hours later, I went to ~ same place in woods and again whistled a similar phrase. Two birds approached together, one of which called and is recorded in Cut FL-9, to a point about 15 m. away; one of these, not the one that was calling, came up to ~ 3 m. from me in response to my continued whistles, but then spied me and quickly ran away. The other did not come any closer than the 15 m. point and then gradually moved away. I didn't have an opportunity to see the birds wwell enough to try to determine their sex, due to intervening foliage.
