Fourth segment: B/R is in feeder alone. At 1:34 LB/O arrives at the feeder and enters. At 1:57 LB/O flies off chasing a third, unidentified bird. B/R begins hopping excitedly in front of the mesh wall that faces in the direction that the two birds fly away. At 3:37 LB/O returns and alternates between sitting on the exterior perches and hanging from the mesh floor (she does not enter the feeder at any time. At 5:10 the sounds of LB/O sitting on the exterior perches can be heard (the branches are see-sawing from the weight and hitting against the interior of the feeder). At approx. 8:00, a single Foudia rubra comes to the feeder and begins vocalizing while moving around the outside of it. It moves away from the feeder at approx. 10:00. At 11:28 LB/O flies approx. 10 ft. away from the feeder into another tree, perches momentarily and then flies away. Several Pycnonotus jocosus can be heard vocalizing near the feeder throughout the recording.

Fifth segment: LB/O arrives at the feeder at the beginning of the recording and alternates between sitting on exterior perches and hanging from the feeder's mesh floor (again, she does not enter the feeder). B/R continues moving about rapidly inside throughout recording. Near the end of the recording, a third bird (unidentified flies by and LB/O flies after it).

Sixth segment: B/R is inside feeder. LB/O arrives at the feeder early in recording and alternates between sitting on exterior perches and hanging from the feeder's mesh floor (again, she does not enter the feeder). At :50, LB/O flies off and B/R moves in front of mesh wall that faces the direction LB/O flew away and begins hopping back and forth excitedly.

LNS: Recording is from 1033-1111.
