NOTES: BNA: "Chupp" call. (Behavioral Context of Sound: Alarm? Distress? General Climate: Arid. Habitat Types: Sagebrush. Weather: Ground fog over marsh 1/2 km E.) Brush about 1/2 m tall. Bird was sitting on a fenceline along a road. Appeared to be agitated by my presence, likely due to close proximity of a nest. Habitat: Grassland, Montane Grassland, Thicket/Brush.
