Dawn +3.0hrs ML: This recording combines the raspy "eeech" calls described in BNA account for this species (0:025-0:06, 0:25-0:27, 0:345), with calls comparable to the complex Chatters described in BNA account for Selasphorus sasin (0:22-0:24, 0:41-0:43; see also Figure 3A) and Chip Calls (0:345, 0:365, 0:48-0:50), which I suspect represent contact calls more than warning calls. The buzzes at 0:13-0:14 and at 0:48 were emitted by the wings as the bird flew off. There appear to be "cryptic" stop-starts at 0:16 and 0:40. All times measured from beginning of recording on species reel. CAM - 2 May 2005]. Habitat: Forest, Wetland, Evergreen Forest, Coniferous Forest, Deciduous Forest, Edge.
