NOTES: Recordist's Notes: A pair at nest. White-winged Doves in background. Q2 [The first part of this recording appears to contain mostly "Call 2" (0:16-0:35, 0:39-0:45), but also a few renditions of "Call 1" (0:28-0:31, apparently by a second bird, and 0:35-0:38). The second part appears to begin with "Gravel" Calls (0:49-0:55) and continue with four examples of "Call 1" (1:01-1:05) in the foreground, but with "Call 2" scattered throughout the background. Terminology follows Brenowitz 1978 (Wilson Bull. 90:451-455) and BNA. Quality changed from 2 to 2-3, 2. NOTE also that the quality of the sound in the first part seems rather odd, suggesting that the tape speed may not have been correct [?] - CAM - 15 December 2004].
