Media notes

LNS: Flight song is 7 seconds, the rest is recordist's notes. LNS: Same subject as LNS 169575. Recording part of a study of the Vesper Sparrows songs at this location. Telinga Pro 7 set to stereo with the HPF on due to traffic. This is the flight song by the focal male (Vesper sparrow Focal Male song_MD_WH_12T0991.WAV). He was perched on a fence post and did this display spontaneously. There is one syllable from the East Male used here that never appeared in the Focal Males normal songs. Habitat: Active Agricultural.
