At Hippo Pool. G. c. meridionalis. BNA: Although quite different from the calls of New World Gallinula chloropus, the series at 1:23-1:28 is presumably homologous to either the Cackle or a rapid series of Cluck calls as described in BNA account. There are a few similar calls in the background at the beginning of the recording, but I do not think that anything else in the foreground of the recording was given by Gallinula. (CAM - 2 March 2005). Habitat: Lake.
