Media notes

NOTES: Croaking while bird stayed beside the edge of the ponds in lily pads. Gain dropped from time to time for airplanes. I moved from about 15 meters away down to 5 meters hidden behind some vegetation. [This would appear to represent the Squawk call described in BNA account (though it is much more "grating" than usual). I am less sure of the category for the series at 2:13-2:19. Quality added (2-3, 2 - improves later in recording) - CAM - 2 March 2005] LNS: Subject changed from Gallinula chloropus to G. galeata to reflect current taxonomy. -Matt Medler, 14 Sept 2011. Number of individuals=UU2-3;. Habitat: Wetland, Pond.
