NOTES: Cover density: THICK; BIRD FLEW ABOUT PROBABLY SEARCHING FOR NESTS FOR FEMALE TO PARASITIZE. SEVERAL UPSLURS. THEN ONE OR A FEW DOWNSLURS - IS THE MAIN SONG. ALSO INCLUDED IS THE COMPLETE SUMMER SONG WITH SOME FINISHING FLOURISHES I'VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE. VERY DIFFERENT FROM HARSH CALL OF LONG-TAILED CUCKOO. NO RESPONSE TO PLAYBACK OR TO WHISTLING. THIS WAS A DENSE BEECH FOREST ABOUT 100' AWAY FROM E SHORE OF THE LAKE 3/4 MI FROM LOWER END OF LAKE. BIRD FOUND BY CANOEING ALONG THE SHORE.
