Media notes

Three recordings of the same bird are stitched together here, with 1s of silence between them. They all have the bizarre call/song of the species: the single, repeated 'chick' note, followed by a rapid fire 'check-check'. The first clip also has a bizarre growl-type sound in between, but the other two don't have this. I'm presuming this is the song. The initial 'chick' sounds are also heard on their own, as a call.

Observation details

Recording made on the highest rock (Gudi-banda?) above Duranta Hill. Three slips of the same bird, illustrating the bizarre call. Song sequence starts at some 30s in the first clip.
