NOTES: MIXED HARDWOODS WITH INTERSPERSING POPLAR-ASH SLOUGHS. VOCALIZATION IS FLICKER-LIKE BUT NOT FLICKER. SEE CORRESPONDENCE 19APR69. ADDITIONAL MATERIAL FROM 03MAR68 IS ALSO INCLUDED. Sex: 1 UNKNOWN [Well, I'm not sure what to say here. As far as I can determine, there are only four original sound clips here. The recordings at 0:04-0:32 and 0:49-0:57 are certainly flicker-like, especially the contiuous series at 0:04-0:21 and 0:26-0:32, but I am less certain about the latter part of the first series (0:21-0:23), which appears to have been recopied twice at 0:41-0:48. A similar vocalization is included at 0:49-0:57 (recopied at 0:59-1:06). Given the very different quality of these sounds relative to those in LNS #6784, combined with the close similarity of the calls to those of Colatpes auratus, leads me to doubt that any of these sounds were given by C. principalis. The recordings from 3 March 1968 (2:45-3:07) represent the calls of Buteo lineatus. Quality unchanged (2;3 - the signal is not bad for the first part, but terrible for the rest, most of which seems to represent copies of various recordings) - CAM - 22 April 2005]. Habitat: Forest.
