Data on paper forms available as PDF. This recording contains all of the audio recorded on tape 68-19; Mundinger wrote down Wollensak counter numbers in reference to what was happening on tape. The only edits I made were increases in amplitude. mf Counter number 30 = 1:21 from beginning of specimen: recordist raised gain as indicated on paper data. Counter 78 = 2:05 from beginning: "Now I'm recording purple female..." Counter 190-230 I believe = 7:27 from beginning: v. noisy background orange yellow sweeds; "too soft". Counter 560 = 17:27 from beginning: "attempted courtship feeding Ooooo."
