A caged juvenile originally from Sotik, an area NW of Nairobi within 80km of Lake Victoria. The bird was thought to have hatched on about 01Apr1964. These ticks or rattles were recorded on the 22nd and 31st of May. In adults, this sound is referred to as "tick-scold". Myles feels that there is no apparent reason for this, unless the bird had been habituated to the presence of the microphone placed about two feet from it and was anxious.
