NOTES: 2 or 3 birds; 2 types of calls: (1) rapid twittering interaction (2) "zeep" at start and after 1:48. Background noise: voice identification. Dubbed from reel 7, Kavik River Camp. Credit CAGSL where feasible. [There appear to be three different vocalizations represented here (based on BNA account), the "zhee" contact-call, the sharp "pit" flight-call, and "twittering." Zhee calls are heard at 0:11, 0:125, 0:14, 0:20, 0:56-0:57, 1:485, 1:52, 2:03, 2:05-2:07, 2:21, 2:255, 2:31. Flight-calls are given at 0:15, 0:155, 0:16, 0:25, 1:47, 1:51, 1:595, 2:23, 2:24, 2:29 (the last three the BEST series). Twittering is heard intermittently throughout, but with the BEST examples at 0:14-0:20 and 0:28-0:37. Quality changed from 2 to 2-1, 2-3 (BEST clip is at 0:11-0:21) - CAM - 18 February 2005].
