At the Koa tree-fall. There are a few cirrus clouds, but mostly blue sky, light breeze from time to time, but generally still. The species in this recording began with Oma'o, and a pair of dueling Amakihi, it was the trilled song and at times they stepped on one another vocally with both songs being sung almost simultaneously and then alternating. This nasal "eh" and some of the other loud honking calls are I'iwi. The very loud, musical song that was heard towards the end is red-billed leiothrix.
