NOTES: BNA: The Song is heard. CZ 19/03/2004. [This is primarily the song of the species, with 21 different element types included in the recording. Each element type is typically repeated twice, but there are many examples of a single element given alone and some of three elements given together; rarely, songs combine two different types of elements (e.g., 0:35, 1:53, 2:44) or more than three repetitions of the same element (e.g., 14:55). New element types appear in this recording at 0:06, 0:08, 0:12, 0:56, 1:29, 1:305, 1:32, 1:35, 1:49, 5:00, 5:03, 5:53, 6:01, 7:38, 8:12, 8:50, 8:52, 9:04, 11:51, 11:52, and 12:50. In addition to the songs are many examples of both "Chuck" (0:06, 0:11, 0:12, 0:14, 0:16...) and "Seet" (0:07, 0:09, 0:17, 0:20, 0:21...) Calls, but they are never given to the exclusion of song elements. Also, the rate of singing is much higher from after the break at 11:48 to about 13:30. There are "cryptic" stop-starts at 1:29, 5:50, and 10:535. Quality changed from 1 to 1-2 (some wind noise but otherwise good) - CAM - 13 May 2005]. Response to playback: Approach. Response to playback: Normal song. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Desert, Thicket/Brush, Scrub, Canyon, Rocky.
