“This bird was very vocal while feeding on animal prey (e.g. exploring cocoons in curled leaves). I suspect it is looking for a mate.

“This is a new Sultan Tit to the patch as the earlier one I had been watching was an adult male. This one is a female (or immature male – appreciate opinions).

“A recording of the calls (above) and sonogram/waveform (below).”
