    Equipment Note

NOTES: The first section contains a few songs from a single individual that had moved close to the trail entrance. These songs began only about a minute from the cessation of singing by the focal individual in MLNS 112190. I cannot say with complete certainty that this is the same individual. The position of the bird in the first section of this recording was very close to the visible song perch of MLNS 112190. I estimate that during the first section, the bird was 3-4 meters from my position and down in the undergrowth--based on obtaining a signal strength fix with the parabola. Note also, the mewing calls from an unseen bird delivered at the same time as the solitaire songs--American Robin-like quality. Possibly Red-legged Thrush or solitaire? In the second section of this recording, one hears song from two singing individuals, one of which is believed to be the bird heard in the first section of this recording. Neither bird was visible in the undergrowth, but both were either a medium to low positions--again based on positions determined by signal strength using the parabola. Toward the end of the cut only a single individual appears to be singing, then again both birds are heard singing downslope at the end.
