    Equipment Note

First segment: The birds are obscured within a large Scaevola taccada at the bottom of the gorge. The vocalizations of a single or possibly multiple juveniles can be heard along with the adults. The mechanical sounds of the birds moving within and on top of the vegetation can also be heard.
Second segment: At approx. 2:55, a single bird can be heard flying into the recordist. The bird then can be heard walking into a Latania loddigesii before falling into the gorge. The mechanical sounds of the birds moving within and on top of the vegetation can also be heard.
Third segment: The sounds of several birds flying into Scaevola taccada Latania loddigesii can be heard.
