Figure 1. The singing bird was about 5 meters away from the microphone; it was sitting in a tree, eating its flowers, and singing during the breaks. The song is not loud, but delivered at a fast pace; a human listener may perceive it as somewhat undistinct.

See fig. 2 for details of section with label A.
