NOTES: (Time: 11:25 - 11:40; Number of Animals and Sex: adult males and females; Background Sounds: hoverflies, introduced Bulbul, White-tailed Tropicbird, A. Tristis, T. b. desolata) This male returned many times during the morning to this particular place to sing breaking from the foraging flock to do so thus indicating his "focal area" and potential nest site. Listen for the mimicry of Coracina typica song [at 2:36] in the middle of his song phrases and Bulbul [Pycnonotus jocosus at 2:55 and 3:29]. Ends with "flight intention" call at 3:47. Field annotations included! Also on #73388 and #73391.
