0:00-0:55
ambi -birds. Very quite.

0:56 uv
I'm not really picking up from there.

1:00 uv
His back is to us as well.

1:02 uv
It just doesn't seem like he's registering.

1:08 uv
Now, if I don't see it here does that mean I'm not hearing it?

1:13-1:33 uv
It's not really going down, not well anyway. So the next thing to do is to, again, have the distance to the bird. We can try and do that now while he's over at that other _____ perhaps you can try and get closer to the _____.

1:37-2:01 uv
One of the things to watch is while this birds singing, behaviors that are associated with song. Does he flip his tail up and down with each strophe, each phrase? Does he throw the head back, turn it from side to side while he's singing. That's good behavior to get. Sometimes some of the sparrows flick their wings while they sing. Some of these behaviors are specific.

2:02 uv
Okay, so it can help you to id them.

2:03-2:25 uv
It can help you to id them and it's also not information that you find in a lot of literature so you have the opportunity to gather behavioral information that may not exist anywhere else. And you're seeing it first-hand. You can announce the behavior right on tape and we have a great scientific record.

2:25-16:00
ambi -birds. While these sounds are not that loud there are many different types of bird calls present, a lot of layers. There are some sounds of walking in the first few seconds but they stop. Overall this is good sound but there isn't any one specific point that jumps out as better than the others. Good.

9:04 uv (whispered)
What are the bird with the yellow heads called? (whispered, but still loud enough to hear)

9:06 uv
Yellow-headed blackbirds. (whispered, but still loud enough to hear)

13:01 uv
Don't move. He's right behind us.

16:01 uv
That was good Christen. How was your level?

16:05 Christen
Good I think. That was good.

16:08-16:51 uv
You could hear that as he would move his head side to side he could actually project it more efficiently in this direction. I think what we might do, it's getting close to breakfast time, so if I leave and Don leaves, birds can't count so if we get up and walk away he may actually come into this song perch very close to you if you just sit tight. Tend to keep your head still and just look from side to side using your peripheral vision. I think you might get him in very close. If you want to hang out for a few minutes. You may get the perfect chance.

16:52 Christen
That was better than the ones before.

16:55 uv
Good. You did a great job. You were nice and still. Did a super job aiming the microphone and the conditions worked out.

17:02 Christen
Oh, actually, I have a question for you. When I leave my microphone in stop for too long it goes into sleep mode. Is there a way to avoid that because it's a little noisy to load the tape again.

17:20-17:58 uv
If you have an idea of how long that might take you could just stop the recorder. It's going into a sleep mode to save power. So if you just stop it and put it in record immediately, it won't go all the way into unloading the tape. So you'd have to just get an idea of . . . The other option is just to role tape and when the bird is in close proximity like this it's probably to your advantage to just continue rolling tape. Tape is the cheapest thing in your reporting system.

17:59 Christen
That tape's not cheap.

18:01 uv
Well, eight bucks for two hours and you can just roll it.

18:10 C
And this is sage scrub habitat, and what is this area called?

18:50 uv
This is Dyson Lane in Plumice County. I would say this is sagebrush, but it's adjoining marsh, tooley marsh.

18:26 C
What does tooley mean?

18:27 uv
Thos tall green reeds, those are tooley. And this is effectively pasture with good patches of sagebrush. And you're just 100 degrees Northwest of the first 90-degree turn. Dyson Lane Plumice County. Good Luck.

19:50
Recording is stopped. Sound starts in again
