NOTES: Background: DACELO NOVAEGUINEAE (TWO BIRDS); HARSH CALL NOTES MAY BE HEARD OCCASIONALLY, NEARLY UNNOTICED AMONG THE BELL-LIKE 'PINK'S. THE LOOSE FLOCK, MOST OF WHICH WAS INVISIBLE IN THE FOLIAGE AT ANY ONE TIME, STAYED IN ONE GROVE, BUT INDIVIDUALS WERE CONSTANTLY CLIMBING AND FLYING AROUND, THOUGH NOT SEEN TO CALL ON THE WING. WHEN NOT VOCALIZING, THEY WERE FEEDING APPARENTLY CHIEFLY ON INSECTS, SOME OF WHICH THEY CAUGHT ON THE WING, BUT MOST WERE GLEANED FROM THE TREES. THESE BIRDS APPARENTLY REMAIN IN FLOCKS ALL YEAR. THEIR INCESSANT NOTES MUST SERVE, IN PART, TO KEEP THEM TOGETHER. WOODED HILLSIDE WITH A FEW TALL SHRUBS AT EDGE OF A PASTURE. EARLY AFTERNOON. Sex: 35-40 UNKNOWN
