    Equipment Note

One individual is perched on the same branch as in 1015.wav. The second bird flies in from east to west carrying another lizard in its talons, this one larger. It is calling while in flight. It lands next to the first bird at approx. :08. The two birds vocalize with one another in close proximity for a longer period of time than the previous recording and then the second bird relenquishes the lizard to the first bird. The second bird flies to the ground with it and begins eating the lizard on a rock.
