ID confidence and determinationNot seen. [Ed.: calls consistent with other night-flying Buru parrot FRL cuts (and differ from all T. megalorynchos cuts studied) in being non-metallic, slightly nasal, rather drawn-out, more-or-less same-pitch, with a harder, yelling quality throughout; sonagrams show many evenly spaced harmonics, unlike in T. megalorynchos]
