Summary of the analysis of recordings in WBNP 2000, 2001 and 2002 and correlation with ANWR 2000, 2001
Recordings made by Brian Johns (WBNP) and Bernhard Wessling (ANWR), Analysis by Bernhard Wessling

I have revised some of the earlier correlations between pairs in ANWR (99/00, 00/01) and WBNP (2000). It should again be mentioned, that the analysis of Whooping Crane calls is more complicate and more sensitive to mistakes than in case of Common Crane calls (according to my experience), as most of the WC are related with each other and the calls more similar. But now, with ever more recordings and analyses, especially with more recordings from a given pair (and not only one), the assignments have become even more reliable. It was possible now to distinguish and assign even such calls, where the spectra are extremely similar and prone to generation of mistakes.
