Jose, listen to this:

The impression that the frog-like second part of the alam call comes from a=
 different direction might simply be caused by its lower frequency (its ave=
rage frequency is only about have of that of the whistle). This frequency d=
ifference alone will cause a different directionality. High-pitched sounds =
are generally emitted more directional than lower ones, depending on the ph=
ysical size of the sound source.

The effect could also be caused by the M/S microphone system itself because=
 the polar pattern of any microphone always changes a bit with the signal f=
