Abstract

During three field seasons in southwestern Madagascar we made opportunistic observations and tape recordings of the sounds produced by the Long-tailed Ground-roller (Uratelornis chimaera; Brachypteraciidae). Here we present new information on vocal behavior in this species and provide the first documentation of display and nonvocal production of sound by any ground-roller.
