Five "sonations" of Pitta ussheri at start of recording as bird flies from the perch it had been singing from to a new one, then it sings from a new spot at end of recording. Bird not seen as it flew, but the direction of the song changed after the sonation. Pellorneum capistratum song is whistled two-note "hey yea". Pitta 3.
