NOTES: (Species Sound: constant; Breeding Status: not territorial, breeding?, not breeding?; Behavioral Context: mate contact?; General Climate: arid; Cover Density:medium) [I believe that the viocalizations here represent primarily the "keeup" and/or "tidilip" calls of BNA, but there may also be some "tew" calls (e.g., 0:19, 0:21, 0:43, 1:03, 1:15, 1:37, 1:443). Based on the calls given, I suspect that this is the same individual highlighted in LNS #80353 and #80354. Quality added (2, maybe 2-1 due to a bit of tape hiss) - CAM - 4 February 2005]. Other Behaviors: Establish Flock Contact, Perform Visual Display. Habitat: Forest, Grassland, Freshwater, Evergreen Forest, Coniferous Forest, Meadow, Pasture, Second-growth, Scrub.
