    Equipment Note

These sounds were identified by 3 Natives who happened to be present at the time of the "Coition". Both name and the description they gave me corresponded to this species, yet in more than 15 years of experience with this species I have never hear these sounds before.

In the first segment, calls that appeared to indicate a conflight situation between two birds, although they were not at the moment extremely close to each other. As the calls ceased I tried playback of the first part recorded, this brought the following reaction. The birds were up in trees. The Natives indicated that although they are on the ground by day they roost in trees at night.
