Swamp Boubou - Laniarius bicolor Rick Nuttall 1999-12-10 Nambwa Campsite / Island, Zambezi Region, Namibia, Caprivi (Namibia) (950 m) song -

This recording includes two different duet sequences uttered consecutively by a pair of Swamp Boubous (same birds as in XC460846), present in riverine thicket among tall riverine forest trees. The first duet begins with one bird uttering two staccato notes, which are not answered; this is then followed by two duet phrases which start with a longer series of these staccato notes, answered by a slightly lower-pitched call of the second bird, which overlaps with the ongoing staccato notes of the first bird. A second duet sequence, comprising three repearted phrases, follows soon after the first; here the first bird utters a loud, even-pitched, musical whistle, which is answered each time by a short, sharp 'chekk'. Some frogs may also be heard in the background. Original recording analogue; converted to digital. Recording modified slightly, using high pass and low pass filtering, as well as slight amplification.
