NOTES: Calls of group of foraging Z.b. borbonicus with Z. olivaceus. There is a sequence of this sp.--mobbing a "merle." Also heard are the "begging" calls of a juv. olivaceus. There is an annotation that denotes when the mobbing calls start "block of borbonicus" then song phrases of olivaceus (annotation re: mobbing) the olivaceus calls are with the borbonicus at end as the two were together. "Merle" local name for the Hypsipetes olivaceus. I noted several "mobbing" "occasions" when the H. olivaceus was mobbed by Zosterops both spp. and by c. newtoni.
