NOTES: Initially two birds, later only one, a male that was seen quite well at close range in relatively dense scrub right along road; I saw the second bird only as it moved about; the male was generally 1/2 to 2 meters up and it flew very near the ground when it crossed the road; ÒspishingÓ resulted in calling and occasional song, but playback resulted in rapid approach and song with few calls; recorded along a depression with some water, possibly a seasonal stream, along main road about 100 meters beyond intersection with spur road; more cloudy than it had been, calm, 78¡ F.
