Comments: call.   A single individual emerged from the grass and perched in a 4m tall Box Elder tree about at about 2/3 the tree's height and issued the squeaky calls before then flying north when harassed by a Northern Cardinal. This mp3 has been excerpted from the same .wav file that contains XC288984.  


  State waterfowl refuge along the margins of USACE flood control reservoir. Strip along the lake margins ~1km wide of moist soil grassland with mix of forbs, native warm season grasses (Andropogon, Schyzachyrium, Eragrostis, Aristida, etc.), and some sparse woody vegetation (Cephalanthus, Quercus saplings, etc.) bounded by oak hickory forest and, in places, pine plantation. Three or four shallow waterfowl impoundments partially flooded in the winter.
