NOTES: Same pair as cut 12, but after an interval. (1) Anxiety calls 0-0.71 (2) Territorial flight display: 0.10-0.18, 0.27-0.56 (3) 1.01 wing sounds and distant display. [A good series containing low-intensity "Alarm Calls" (0:13-0:20 (three), 0:30-0:37 (four)), "Complex Whistles" (0:22-0:28, 0:38-0:40), and "Chase" or "Aggression" calls (0:42-1:06 - as the bird flew off). I suspect that the bird highlighted in the last part of this recording (1:09-1:22) was a different species (but with P. dominica calling in the background). Terminology follows Connors et al. (1993. Auk 110:9-20). Quality unchanged (1-2) - CAM - 1 December 2004].
