 Sonogram of Lapland Bunting song

Tørrvann, Finnmark, Norway  70° 27' 50.8" N  29° 01' 07.3" E  22 June 2019

Territorial song from dwarf willow scrub around a tundra lake.

Song composed of 2.6-3.4 sec strophes repeated around five times per minute. Each strophe a jangle of mainly down-slurred elements including metallic-sounding buzzes (range 1.6-7.4 kHz). Not unlike Snow Bunting in structure but sounding less musical and more wheezy with an undulating rhythm. Single song type heard.
