Tropical Kingbird - Tyrannus melancholicus J.R. Rigby 2014-12-28 Bay Saint Louis, Hancock County, Mississippi, Hancock (United States) (0 m) call -

Bird was perched in the top of a live oak tree. Playback had been used earlier to try to coax a vocalization without response. Spent ~45min with the bird trying multiple times for a decent recording as it sallied from power lines and other perches, but silently. As we were leaving the bird flew into the oak and began vocalizing continuously for ~5min. Recording has not been edited beyond excerpting from longer recording.
