NOTES: Song sparrow would bob head up and down while producing the flute-like notes. Kind of a pumping action of the head. Maybe used to change the shape of the trachea. Changed song type. Also at a higher pitch. Filtered at 250 Hz. BNA: The Song is heard. CZ 25/06/2004. Other Behaviors: Advertise, Perform Visual Display. Habitat: Park/Campus/Cemetery, Rural, Hedgerow.
