Comments

From BNA: "We feel that metallic pzzt-zing at end of Dive (see Behavior: territorial and agonistic behavior) (Armstrong 1988b) is vocal, owing to impression that high frequency and timbre are similar to whistle that Costa¿s Hummingbird emits when perched; needs sonographic analysis." Recordist's note: other nearby recordist coughs at one point. Studio Tech. Note: HPF @ 150Hz via soundBlade. mf. Other Behaviors: Perform Visual Display.
