Eastern Crowned Warbler Phylloscopus coronatus

“Eastern Crowned Warblers (Phylloscopus coronatus) are not easy to see on migration or at their breeding grounds (above, below). But at least in summer they make a variety loud calls and songs and can be located.

“Below is a sonogram and waveform of a short segment of the song to show 4 different kinds of notes. Other have better described the song/calls but I would like to bring attention to a buzzing note that the bird makes intermittently; seen in the waveform as ‘sausage-shaped’ note.

“Bursts of song are made intermittently, 4-10 seconds apart (in my 4 recordings). Two recordings of song are HERE and HERE.
