    Equipment Note

NOTES: Unseen birds were probably 50-100 m away and generally high up in tall terra firme forest along Aguas Claras Road just beyond the summit; three or four birds were chasing each other about and calling in the immediate vicinity, with the birds here apparently not including the bird recorded in the previous recording; the churring calls were typically given by birds in flight, the whistled ÒsongÓ by perched birds; the last part highlighted a female bird that was well seen and clearly Celeus grammicus, with a chestnut head and black tail; this bird was on a termite mound about the size of a basketball about 25 m up and 28 m away; this was all recorded following playback of previous recordings of these same birds (both #CAR05-75 by myself and later by Luciano N. Naka); response was minimal, but the last cut was recorded after a female approached following additional playback; a few clouds, a mild breeze, and in the upper 80s; this recording combines three files (#CAR137-139).
