    Equipment Note

NOTES: The calling bird was highlighted here; the birds were circling maybe 200 meters overhead around the site of the old becard nest; the bird in view (the one being recorded) was giving a fluttering display as it circled overhead; this cut was recorded after I tried to imitate the bird, which seemed to bring it in to some degree (though the sound given was the same); both birds were adults and they are described briefly on tape; this pair was repeatedly seen in the immediate area (at least once perched in a tree along the road); few clouds, calm, 78¡ F.
