NOTES: Background: GERYGONE FUSCA (?) (WHISTLED SONG); Cover density: OPEN; Weather: WIND; THESE BABBLERS WERE NOT IN VERY GOOD VOICE AT THIS TIME, UTTERING MOSTLY DESULTORY CONVERSATIONAL NOTES OF LOW VOLUME. MANY OF THE NOTES SOUND LIKE COMPLAINTS , NONE OF THEM ARE PLEASING TO HUMAN EARS. NEAR THE END OF THE CUT MAY BE HEARD A LOUDER CALL, PERHAPS AN ALARM SIGNAL, BY THEN I WAS QUITE CLOSE. BIRDS SPENT PART OF THE TIME HALF-HOPPING, HALF-FLYING ALONG THE GROUND, THE REST OF TIME IN BUSHES AND LOW TREES. CONSTANTLY ON THE GO IN A LOOSE FLOCK. FAIRLY SHY BIRDS WHICH HAD TOBE STALKED SOME TIME IN ORDER TO GET CLOSE ENOUGH TO RECORD. IN OPEN GROVE NEAR AN ALMOST DRY STREAM AT EDGE OF GRASSY PASTURE WITH BUSHES AT ONE SIDE. Sex: 6 UNKNOWN. Tech Note: Recordist used genus Pomatorhinus. We follow Peters (Vol. 10) where Pomatostomus is listed. mf 26July2000.
