NOTES: In area of desert with thick bushes and pencil like cactus, desert in bloom due to heavy rains from El Nino storms. Clean whistling and harsh chuffing as if flew off. In top of tallest tree.
Note the foreground sounds are Scrub Jays; the Scott's Oriole is the clean whistle and then harsh chuffing as it flys off.
[Two types of calls are represented here. Given throughout is a sharp "wheet" or "peet" that is also highlighted in LNS #109043, but apparently not described in BNA account (0:05, 0:08, 0:09, 0:11, 0:14, 0:16, 0:20, 0:25, 0:30, 0:31, 0:34). At the end are five "chuck" calls (0:32, 0:35, 0:37, 0:39, and 0:43), apparently given as the bird moved off. Most of the louder calls in the early part of the recording were given by the Aphelocoma. Quality added (2-3, 2 - the "chuck" calls at the end are not bad) - CAM - 24 January 2005]
