I've had second thoughts about my ability to id a CBC by call, and now
after listening to several BOCA CD recordings several times my memory of
the call is playing tricks on me and is sounding like a Noisy Friarbird!
I was pretty sure at the time, but NF is a far more likely bird to find
there.  I'm annoyed that I've mixed up the calls and I'm still not sure
either way.
