    Hawaiian Moorhen calls used in DesRochers et al. (2008) for call-broadcast. (Download PDF) All recording except peeping were made by David DesRochers on Oahu. The cackle, squawk, yelp, and cluck (all adult vocalizations) were recorded in 2004 at Waimea Valley Audubon, and the squeal (chick vocalization) was recorded at James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge. The peeping call (adult vocalization) is from Pratt (1995 Voices of Hawaii's Birds, Hawaii Audubon Society) recorded on Oahu.
