Media notes

Song with a great deal of mimicry recorded at 0859 hours.This Gray Catbird has an extraordinary repertoire of mimicked phrases based upon my personal experience with this species in the eastern US. Bird was clearly seen singing from the top of a pine in the middle of a small pond with closely associated willows that the bird also sang from. The precise coordinates for this recording are: 39.69778482194608, -120.4584789276123. Two other much longer recordings, to large to currently upload, made with an MS stereo pair of microphones were made on this date. The recording following this recording in time was made with an MS stereo pair of microphones.
