NOTES: song and 1 odd call from unknown location in wet shrubby area; occasional wind BNA: Song is heard. CZ 28/05/2004. [Thirty-two songs given at four different pitches between 2.5 and 5 kHz. Fourteen songs have one note, 12 have two, and six have three notes. The song at 3:18 is also atypical because it ends with an unusual, slurred trill. There is a "tseep" call at 2:14. I believe there is a "cryptic" stop-start at 2:13, but it is difficult to be sure. Quality changed from "V.good" to 1-2, 2 (BEST before 0:57) - CAM - 17 June 2001]. Other Behaviors: Court, Advertise. Habitat: Thicket/Brush.
