NOTES: 2 individuals were well seen. An adult was feeding a second bird that also appeared to be an adult but could have been a juvenile, giving the cat-like whine. Hard to record since the bird would call immediately after the playback and then not call again. The birds did not respond to playback of the cat-like whine. Response to playback: Normal song. Other Behaviors: Mate.
