    Equipment Note

The bird (female) flies in and lands on the branch of a large tree. It vocalizes and then flies to another tree where visual contact in lost. It continues to vocalize from this position.
The birds fly in and land in different trees approx. 18 ft. away from one another. The male bird vocalizes. Both birds are partially obscured. Near the end of the recording, the female bird takes something from the tree with its beak and begins scraping it on the branch
