Males produce a long sequence of chirps varying from 1.7 to 2.9 per sec at a carrier frequency of about 2.0 kHz with harmonic overtones (Walker and Figg, 1990; Hill, 2000), and some aspects of the calling song are known to correlate with characteristics of the male's morphology (Howard and Hill, 2006).
