    Equipment Note

NOTES: 80Hz low-cut filter on Sound Devices 744T. At 14:33, I switch from 30"Roche w/ Sennheiser MKH20 to Sennheiser MKH70 shotgun microphone. Vocalizations given in response to my presence and subsequent approach. After making the recording I did find the nest that I had presumed was there. Four eggs present. Further descriptive details given in announcement at end of cut. This entire cut should be treated as aggressive calls given towards me as nest defense.
