Blue Rock Thrush – calls

posted in: birds, Vocalisation | 0

A male Blue Rock Thrush (Monticola solitarius madoci) that cast a pellet while I was watching but I missed the action. The image (below) showing the pellet near the bird. It was sadly too high to retrieve for examination.

Below is the sonogram and waveform of the common ‘conversational’ calls the bird makes. They are made infrequently and I culled this from 4 different recordings today. An edited recording here:

Their range of vocalisation is under recorded.
