Media notes

Really great quality of one bout of calling. The bird was so close I was able to use a very low recording sensitivity which allowed most other noises to be filtered out. As a consequence this was only edited with a ~400hz filter.

Observation details

really cool experience: bird was calling spontaneously and almost constantly from less than 6 m into the marsh and also from exposed areas near marsh; at one point even walked into the hedgerow where it proceeded to walk around and call from underneath cedars and deciduous trees and shrubs!
