    Equipment Note

NOTES: A pair, both members of which were well seen; these birds were initially together about 30 meters away and 6-8 meters above the water in a dead snag over the water, but they flew off to separate perches and I tried to highlight each bird separately, the male at first and the female (the one with the brown breast-band) second (I switched between birds after they flew, and one can hear my stepping when I turned around); the male was 18 meters up in a large, dead leguminous tree, possibly a Parkia, but the female was 8 meters up in a dead snag right over the water the upper end of an arm of the new reservoir; given their tenacity, one wonders if a nest or young were nearby because these birds don't normally stay put calling for so long; partly cloudy, intermittent breeze, probably in the mid-80s (the thermometer had been cooked at this point).
