NOTES: Two songs by a bird that I had whistled in and obtained good views of before I recorded it and saw moving when I was recording; it was 20 meters away and 20 meters up near the top of a tree at the edge of the large channel of now relatively low igap¿ that crossed the spur road near its terminus [03¡ 48' 38" S, 60¡ 17' 20" W]; in response to my whistled imitation, the bird came in right over my head but it did not seem to change its song appreciably, and it sang intermittently both before and after my whistling; clouds beginning to break up, breezy, and probably in the upper 80s to low 90s (the thermometer indicated 97¡ F, but it had probably been in the sun); first and last parts of this cut were not copied.
