NOTES: Calls by two birds, one of which was seen relatively well before I made this recording; the first part of the recording has unsolicited calls by a bird that was perched motionless, 15-18 meters away and 15 meters up, on exposed branches in the top of a tall dead tree at the edge of a small clearing along the stream right at the sharp bend in the road at the bottom of the hill; the latter part was recorded following playback of itself, in response to which, the bird came right in but moved around quite a bit about 10 meters up overhead in the canopy of a vegetated trees; partly cloudy, consistently breezy, 86¡ F.
