NOTES: (Breeding Status: territorial) Tield notes for this recording, page 27, details the behavior of the 4 birds [seen just 2 when I played back]. At the end of the sequence recorded a male, and female "came out" - so likely it was an interaction at the edge of a "territorial boundary" with 2 pairs as the breeding season was starting.
ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Terpsiphone bourbonnensis bourbonnensis to Terpsiphone bourbonnensis to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
