    Equipment Note

The bird flies in from right to left and lands in the Diospyros tessellaria. Two other Psittula echo are already in the tree. It makes two calls and one of the other birds flies off. It should be noted that this particular tree is slightly larger than the surrounding vegetation and many of the branches are barren. A large number of Psittula echo had been landing and flying from this tree just before the primary individual landed
