Media notes

You can hear the beep from the bluetooth, followed by a previously taped YERA from my iPOD(with WISN, LESP and SEWR in the background). Once the YERA starts up I pause the playback and you can hear the recorded response at a different volume and tone (with only frogs in the background). In recording actual bird starts calling at 46 seconds and stops at 52 seconds.

Observation details

Heard only at 9:45 and then very occasionally afterwards from 20-30ft away. Responded immediately to play back with a brief series of ticks. The bird was about 100-200 ft SW out from the point at the SEWR location. Broadcast a second time and recorded response. After that it sang spontaneously on only a couple of occaisions and each time the 'ticking' lasted no more then 5-10 seconds. On the recording you can hear both the broadcast YERA and the responding YERA. You can hear the beep from the bluetooth, followed by a previously taped YERA (with WISN, LCSP and SEWR in the background). Once the YERA starts up I pause the playback and you can hear the recorded response at a different volume and tone (with only frogs in the background). In recording actual bird starts calling at 46 seconds and stops at 52 seconds.
