    Equipment Note

At the beginning of the recording, there are approx. 7-8 birds at one of the feeders. They are vocalizing at various volumes. The mechanical sounds of the the hinged doors being opened as well the sounds of birds coming to and leaving the feeder can be heard. At approx. 3:00, approx. 20 parakeets fly in from from right to left and land in various trees in front of the field house. The mechanical sounds of their wings can be heard (NOTE: several voices of M.W.F. employees can be heard in the background)
