    Equipment Note

One individual is perched on the branch of a tree approx. 60 ft. west of nest site BU-1. The second bird flies in from east to west carrying a lizard in its talons. It passes by the first bird several times while calling. At approx. 1:01, it lands next to the first bird. The two birds vocalize with one another in close proximity and then the second bird relenquishes the lizard to the first bird.
