NOTES: 120 songs and six long calls of bird #2, which had just begun singing when I arrived at 5:10 but was back quite a distance from road and moving quite a bit for first ten minute; first part of cut ended at 5:20:25; I then missed about five songs getting back onto bird, which was now 35-40 m away and in the tree it usually sang from; it moved again at 5:23:22, this time along road to the east, but moved back even before I could get onto it; upon its return, bird was 30-35 m away and high up in its usual, very large tree with many vine tangles on south side of road; recorder off at 5:44:51 but back on at 5:45:07 after missing one song when bird moved a bit to south to a point 60 m from me on south side of road, now in a row of trees running perpendicular to road; two final songs were given after this was recorded but before I left the area at 6:00; recorded along logging road, 1.3 km. W of highway (03¡ 02Õ 33" S, 54¡ 56Õ 21" W); clear, calm, 75¡ F; sun in trees by end of cut.
