NOTES: SHORT SONG OR WHISTLE. 1 MALE(S) BNA: Primary Song is heard. CZ 01/06/2004. [The only vocalizations in the first part of this recording that are likely to have been given by A. maritimus are the "tuck" calls that may be heard throughout this part, but especially after 0:33. These same calls may be evident in the distant background of the second part, but if so, they are difficult to identify with certainty. The series of high-pitched "tsips" (e.g., 1:025-1:045, 1:055-1:065, 1:115-1:13, 1:145-1:155, 1:185-1:20, 1:28-1:30, and 1:49-1:525) may or may not represent this species (compare against "tsip" calls in Figure 5a of BNA account). Primary song is heard in the background of the second part (1:075, 1:16, 1:205, 1:24), once in the third part (at 2:10), and throughout the fifth part (the nine BEST examples at 2:20-2:59). This represents A. m. macgillivraii based on range. Quality changed from 2 to 3, 2 (if there is anything in the first part, it is in the distant background, and everything by this species in the second part is in the background - most of the louder vocalizations here were given by blackbirds) - CAM - 17 March 2005]. Other Behaviors: Advertise, Court. Habitat: Wetland, Marine, Salt Marsh.
