NOTES: Recorded By: MEW North assisted by Bill and Annette Cottrell.
THE FOLLOWING IS ANEXCERPT FROM MYLES' FIELD NOTEBOOK (PGS. 11-12): 'MANY HERE WERE SINGING (EITHER AT THE NEST ON TOP OF BUSHES SAY 10FT UP OR IN SONG-FLIGHTS MOST SPECTACULAR UP TO 100FT OR SO), THE YELLOW WINGS RAISED DIBEDIALLY WITH A BUTTERFLY EFFECT - A MOST BEAUTIFUL SIGHT. TWO YELLOW MALESWOULD OFTEN DIVE AT EACH OTHER PRESUMABLY IN TERRITORIAL FLIGHT; ALSOMALES DID SWIFT FLIGHTS CHASING FEMALES. IT LOOKED LIKE A MOST INTENSIVE DISPLAY JUST AFTER THE START OF THE BIG RAINS - STORMS WERE ABOUT AND INDEED VERY HEAVY. INITIALLY THE FLIGHT SONG CAN BE HEARD THEN A LONG PERIOD OF SONG BY THE MALE OF THIS SPECIES. THE MALE SANG FIRST FOR A LONG PERIOD THEN CHASED AFTER A FEMALE. FINALLY SOME MALE INTERACTION WITH 'THREAT FLIGHTS'. THE DEEP NOTES REFFERED TOIN THE ANNOTATION ARE THOSE OF SPREO HILDEBRANDTI. ADULT(S); MALE; FEMALE

ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Tockus nasutus nasutus to Tockus nasutus to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
