NOTES: Same birds as previous and following recordings (#05-RDAT06-07 & 09), this brief cut contained an odd ÒchurkÓ call that I was not familiar with, but I am relatively certain that it was given by this species because it was closely associated both with birds that I saw and ones that gave the more typical ÒchipÓ calls, but I never actually saw the bird give this call; moreover, the bird giving the ÒchurkÓ call was not the one that gave most of the ÒchipÓ calls; this was recorded after ÒspishingÓ which agitated the birds and resulted in multiple close approaches; this bird, which was about 6-8 m away and 4-5 m up, gave only a few ÒchipÓ calls; scattered thin clouds, calm, 65¡F. Other Behaviors: Mate, Mob, Emit Alarm. Habitat: Forest, Deciduous Forest, Rural, Thicket/Brush, Second-growth, Scrub, Edge.
