NOTES: (Species Sound: constant; Breeding Status: not territorial?, not breeding?; General Climate: arid; Cover Density: sparse; Strata in Habitat: song perch; Noise Reduction System: Nagra LP filter on step 3)

[Five songs, only the last of which has recognizable elements of mimicry (apparently the calls of Cyanocitta stelleri followed by a gargle of Poecile gambeli (possibly with a call of a bluebird in the middle?). Other songs may also include mimicry, but I cannot identify the species being imitated (maybe Turdus migratorius?). Quality added (2 - but with quite a bit of hiss/wind noise) - CAM - 4 February 2005]
