    Equipment Note

The Sennheiser K6 low-cut filter was engaged during recording.

Recordist's Note: "As it vocalized, the bird was sitting on a perch (about seven meters above the ground) near a flowering epiphyte that it was guarding. It occasionally flew to the flower to feed then returned to the perch. The vocalization certainly seemed like a territorial advertisement."
