    Equipment Note

NOTES: General climate: CYCLIC WET-DRY; TINKLING BELL-LIKE, ALMOST 'A RING OF BELLS'. WHEN NOT VOCALIZING BIRDS MOVED ABOUT IN TREE TOPS SEARCHING FOR INSECTS. THEY WOULD PAUSE INTHEIR SEARCHING - THERE WAS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MOVEMENT - BOBBING WOULD NOT BE QUITE RIGHT - UP AND DOWN OF THE BODY.BIRDS REACTED VERY STRONGLY TO PLAYBACK, CAME IMMEDIATELY TO WHERE I WAS WITH THE RECORDER.THEY EVEN CAME QUITE LOW DOWN THE TREE TO THE BUSH OVER MY HEAD. FINALLY THEY FOLLOWED ME DOWN THE PATH FOR ABOUT 150YDS. OR MORE. EACH TIME AFTER I PAUSED AND PLAYED BACK, SO THEY WOULD APPEAR AND 'ANSWER'. MID-MORNING. END OF DRY SEASON. ADULT(S); MALE(S); FEMALE(S)
