Another chestnut-sided warbler with five renditions of his version of the pleased-pleased-pleased-to-MEETCHA song.
Listen to all three examples of the chestnut-sided warbler's daytime, mate-attraction songs (VA-40,this recording, and VA-42), and compare them to the aggressive songs heard at dawn later in the season (VA-43).
Crowing rooster, ovenbird, red-eyed vireo, indigo bunting, American redstart. Jet aircraft.
