posted in: Vocalisation | 0

“Came across a pair of Ashy Tailorbird (Orthotomus ruficeps cineraceus) and their behaviour and calls suggested they were nesting. The calls made were the ‘zeze, zezee’ type, HERE.

“The sonogram and waveform are shown below.

“Calls were made predominantly by the male with occasional soft answering by female.”
