[This is essentially the song of the species, alternating between both types of Regularly Repeated Vocalizations (RRVs; see Smith, W. J. 1969. Displays of Sayornis phoebe (Aves, Tyrannidae). Behaviour 33:283-322). The 42 vocalizations are given in almost equal proportions. In the first part, the two song-types alternate, beginning with an RRV2 and ending with an RRV1, but in the second part there are three instances in which two RRV1s are given together followed by one RRV2. Quality unchanged (2-1) - CAM - 13 April 2005]
