    Equipment Note

NOTES: Male was well seen just before this was recorded while it sat in the open at the top of one meter tall stick, before dropping down and moving about; the female of the pair was seen briefly by Jeremy Minns; the birds were in dense undergrowth along small draw / streambed and they both seemed to be moving about by the time I recorded this cut; although the parabola was initially pointed at the male, it is possible that I may have switched to the female given that both birds were singing; bird on axis seemed to be between eight and 20 meters away in scrubby and relatively dense undergrowth; in response to initial playback by JM, birds approached quietly and rattled a bit (the rattle was somewhat thinner, higher in frequency, and generally less harsh than that of M. ferruginea), before eventually beginning to sing.
