NOTES: 79 songs of bird #1 recorded in two parts at 5:32 and 5:45; bird began with a long call at 5:17:50 and then songs at 5:18:20, giving three songs before I got onto it; then singing bird flew off before I got onto it, with recording instead beginning with a calling bird (possibly the second individual); two birds singing in close proximity to one another, the close bird singing from the end of the trail was 30-40 m away and high up in large tree; the second bird in the distance made it difficult at times to locate the closer bird; although I was right up under the close bird, the angle was not good at times; second part began at 5:35:22 after bird moved about 50 m to tree near road (it took me quite some time to get back onto it, missing about 10 songs), now 30 m away in one of the heavily vine-covered trees that it regularly sang from; recorded along logging road 500 m W of highway; I missed two songs and one long call (the latter at 5:49) after tape ended; clear overhead at the time but with low clouds off to E that moved in after cut ended, calm, 75¡ F.
ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Ramphastos tucanus cuvieri to Ramphastos tucanus to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
