- Comments: "Heard squeaky call notes and it occasionally popped out from reeds south of Phelps creek bridge. Couldn’t get a picture, but added a sound file (with some nearby construction noise). Pretty noisy bird. Vocalization style seems to indicate an immature bird, although its bill was a dark orange, more typical of an adult."
