    Equipment Note

Three birds are perched at one of the parakeet feeding stations. A fourth bird attempts to land next to one of the original birds but is chased off. The bird opposite of this exchange also flies off. At this point, the microphone is directed towards a second feeder where three more birds are perched. The mechanical sound of the hinged feeder doors being opened and closed by the birds can be heard
