Recorded in MS stereo from a canoe. Martha Fischer and I mounted the microphones to the bow of the boat and paddled around the pond aiming for general colony/roost sounds. I also recorded everything simultaneously with a Telinga Pro5B, hand-held, from the bow of the boat. This recording was aimed at the Mycteria americana + Platalea ajaja rookery in the back (west side) of the pond. Also present are lots of Phalacrocorax auritus (quite vocal at times). The guttural, deep machine gun calls are Mycteria americana and the high-pitched chirping are nestling Platalea ajaja vocalizations. The moon was full and bright while making these recordings.
