Baillon's Crake - Porzana pusilla Alain Malengreau 2019-07-11 Hensies, Hainaut, Wallonie, Hainaut (Belgium) (20 m) adult, call -

This call was heard several times during our monitoring of the first nesting proven of Baillon's Crake in Wallonia (Two pairs in 1.5ha area). We called it "Frog like call" because it is very similar of the calls from green frog. On the field it is very difficult to make difference between green frogs calls and this call from the Baillon' Crake. To be sure to record one from the Baillon's crake, we placed a micro on the way of the crake until we saw it calling near the micro. ME66 + ZOOM H5. Not filtered recording.

A compilation file of the Baillon's Crake calls that an individual was utters from a fixed position from 00:30AM to 00:54AM 26.06.2021 (duration of my presence on this site). The individual was exactly at the same place than the individual of this recording (XC690159), which was already utters regular calls from a fixed position.

Baillon's Crake - Porzana pusilla Tristan Guillebot de Nerville 2021-06-26 Arrondissement d'Abbeville (near Ponthoile), Somme, Hauts-de-France, Somme (France) (0 m) adult, alarm call, call, sex uncertain -

This is a very interesting recording that follow one minute of playback of the male sing. During the last ten second of the playback, an adult was uttering a vocalisation with probable territorial function (isolated on this recording XC690334). On the present recording, this sequence is from 00:07 to 00:10. This vocalisation was the vocalisation describe as 'kraa-kraa-kraa-chachachacha' by Taylor & Van Perlo (1998). From the start to the last second of this recording, an adult utter a low and deep rumble. Cramp & Simmons (1980) and Marchant & Higgins( 1993) (in Taylor & Van Perlo, 1998) describe intimidation calls of this type. The context of observation of this recording suggest that this vocalisation is an intimidation call as well. On the recording, some calls utters by an adult from a fixed position could be heared (see XC690331). This call was utters at the same time than the deep and low rumble, which suggest that each of this call where uttered by a different adult.

Ten minutes laters, i heared and record a call of a probable juvenile of Baillon's Crake at the same place, see XC690333.

highpass to 555Hz. some normalizing and a tiny bit of filtering ...

playback was 'accidentally' used by a non-experienced birdwatcher who arrived at the scene one and a halve hours after I settled down to just determine whether this bird would call by midday or not. you can hear the bird's reaction from the very beginning. more info and pics at https://oudeversie.waarneming.nl/waarneming/view/173548892
