NOTES: Green Heron vocalizations heard only at very beginning and very end of recording. [This recording begins with a good series of the Alarm Call ("Skow"; 0:05-0:11) described in BNA account, possibly with the third call in the series representing instead the Attack Call ("raaah"). After this, series of soft "Kuk, kuk, kuk" Calls are given intermittently throughout the rest of the recording (0:51-0:55, 0:57, 1:08, 1:09, 1:11, 1:19, 1:31, 1:44, 1:50, 2:39, 2:55-3:01 - the two in this latter set being the BEST examples). Quality added (2-1, 2-3 - the signal is quite weak for all but the first set of calls) - CAM - 28 February 2005]. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Pond.
