Blue Jay "Kent"-Like Calls, New Jersey

Blue Jays utter "tooting" calls, as in this example from New Jersey. Although the vocalizations on this recording do not closely resemble the calls of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers, observers in Arkansas have reported Blue Jays making a variant of this call that sounds more like an ivory-bill. The research team will be trying to obtain more Blue Jay recordings in Arkansas for analysis.
