NOTES: Song of same bird as cut #99RDAT02-07 after playback; recorded about 7:40. Bird was well seen after a rapid and aggressive approach in response to playback of itself; bird perched in open in front of us, but never sang while in view; now 10-15 meters away at about eye level, but in vegetation downslope from us (and thus higher than it appeared, likely three to four meters off the ground); clouds breaking up (scattered clouds), calm, mid 70s.
