Male singing--the sequence played back as annotated evoked a response with a different song type--they too were constructing a nest in the same area. ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Terpsiphone bourbonnensis desolata to Terpsiphone bourbonnensis to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015. Response to playback: Approach. Response to playback: Different song. Other Behaviors: Advertise, Mate.
