NOTES: (Breeding Status: Breeding.) Playback of one of these "songs" brought the pair close to me. One was carrying nest-building material. They were "building" and this was a focal area. Thereafter no playback was used and the long sequences with little callilng are of the pair. They were close but gave very low soft calls. Some of these were of warbled phrases, some of the flight call, the aggressive call (very similar to the Reunion olivaceus) as a male chases Z.b. mauritanius away. Annotated on cut. HPF 220 Hz.
