    Equipment Note

The bird is initially sitting on the ground. It is startled by the presence of the recordist and flies into a medium sized tree. The mechanical sound of its wings can be heard as it moves into the tree at approx. :10. At approx. :12, it makes a "honking" type vocalization. It then moves to a higher branch out of visual contact. The mechanical sound of its wings can again be heard as it moves at approx. :31. At approx. :33, it makes another "honking" type vocalization
