NOTES: Weather: WIND; THIS INDIVIDUAL WAS AN ADULT (SEEN WELL - HAD WHITE ON HEAD, NOT THE IMMATURE'S BROWN HEAD) AND YET ITS CALL SEEMS TO BE NOTICEABLY DIFFERENT THAN CALLS OF THOSE RECORDED ON THE TUNGHAI CAMPUS EARLIER IN THE MONTH. ALTHOUGH THISMAY BE A POST-BREEDING SEASONAL VARIATION, IT COULDALSO BE VARIATIONDUE TO PARTIAL ISOLATION OF POPULATIONS IN THE NARROW FINGER-LIKE VALLEYS GOING INTO TAIWAN'S CENTRAL MOUNTAINS. STEEP, SCRUB AND BRUSH-COVERED FOOTHILLS. SMALL VALLEYS. NARROW RAVINES. STREAMS. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Scrub, Canyon.
