    Equipment Note

In this recording, a male and female bird are perched near to one another in a small tree. The female flutters her wings before the male flies to another branch. The male returns to the original branch and the female flies to a different branch closer to the microphone. She again flutters her wings and vocalizes before moving out of visual contact behind the trunk of the tree.
