NOTES: 30 songs of bird #2 recorded in two parts at 5:50:15 and 6:00 as a continuation of cut #99-48-06 beginning at 5:43:09, after missing 10 songs changing tape; cut began with bird in same tree as it was at end of previous reel; unseen bird was moving quite a bit early on, but it stayed high up (30-35 m up) in dense growth in canopy of trees right along road, spending much of its time in large tree 20 m from road; generally 30-50 m away but occasionally 40-60 m away; tape began again at 5:53:58 after missing four songs getting back onto him for second part, now slightly further back, 40-50 m away and into forest on S side of road; bird was singing when I arrived at 5:19 but it generally began singing between 5:15 and 5:17, so I probably did not miss too much; recorded along logging road 1.2 km W of highway (03¡ 02Õ 33" S, 54¡ 56Õ 21" W); largely clear but with clouds to E, calm, 78¡ F; sun was hitting treetops at the end of this cut; there is no tape #99-49!
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.
