    Equipment Note

NOTES: The faintest little song. Three songs on this cut under high wind conditions. Telinga Pro6 in cut. Each song is preceded by about three short "tik" notes that is followed by the short outburst of song. Insect-like in quality. The ticking vocalization is from Embernagra platensis, and it is especially audible after the first break (e.g. 1:03). The best example of Pseudocolopteryx is the third song that starts with three introductory notes at 1:12. This bird was in the same wet grassy area that Sporophila palustris were in. It was the wettest grassy patch on the side of the road. As the bird vocalized, it threw its head back and pointed its open bill skyward. Without the aid of the parabola and headphones, I'm not sure I would have heard the song over the wind. It was barely audible.
