NOTES: Remarkable sounds made by male "attacking" its image in a window pane near a feeder. Better quality (less wind) after 3:30. The bird was fluttering up against the glass while making the noise. Also: creek noise, cough at 1:40 Q 2-3, 2 [It is unclear to me how these vocalizations relate to those described in BNA account. These appear to represent twittering and chase calls given by a male that believes it is in a territorial encounter with a rival. No similar vocalizations are described in BNA account. Quality added (2-3, 2 - BEST after 3:40) - CAM - 2 May 2005].
