Media notes

NOTES: BRUSH COVERED SLOPE - MANY FLOWERS. [This is the ONLY recording available for this one! It contains mostly wing buzzing by a flying male, but there are also numerous Chip Notes and at least two relatively good Chatters (see Figure 3A of BNA account). The recording begins with several sets of hard, doubled Chip Notes, apparently given by a male in flight (0:04-0:06), these followed by softer Chips that were likely given by a perched bird (0:07-0:24). There are three Chatters, possibly given by multiple birds at 0:27-0:34, followed by more hard Chip Notes and then several more Chatters at 0:49-0:54. Most of the rest of the recording has wing buzzing by a male in flight, but there are Chip notes scattered about and several more Chatters in the background. Quality changed from 1-2 to 2, 2-1 (signal is generally quite weak, but there is a GOOD Chatter at 0:26-0:29) - CAM - 2 May 2005].
