NOTES: General climate: CYCLIC WET-DRY; TINKLING BELL-LIKE SOUND, ALMOST 'A RING OF BELLS'. BIRDS WOULD PAUSEIN THEIR SEARCHING ABOUT IN THE TREETOPSAND VOCALIZE -THERE WAS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MOVEMENT - BOBBING WOULD NOT BE QUITE RIGHT - UP AND DOWN OF THE BODY. REACTED VERY STRONGLY TO PLAYBACK, CAME DOWN IMMEDIATELY TO WHERE I WAS WITH THE RECORDER. THEY CAME QUITE LOW DOWN THE TREE, TO THE BUSH OVER MY HEAD. FINALLY THEY FOLLOWED ME DOWN THE PATH FOR150YDS. OR MORE. EACH TIME AFTER I PAUSED, AND THEN PLAYED BACK, SO THEY WOULD APPEAR AND ANSWER. MID-MORNING. END OF DRY SEASON. MALE(S); FEMALE(S)
