Wollensak recorder and microphone.
Data on paper forms available as PDF. Mundinger wrote down Wollensak counter numbers in reference to what was happening on tape. No changes to the tape's runtime were made during archival. The only edits I made were changes in amplitude. mf Counter number 0-12 = 0:04-1:18 from beginning of ML specimen: blue right male released into C-4. No other individuals were identified on tape. Counter 13 = 1:20 from beginning: "June 25, 1969 in front of aviary B-4..." Counter 78 = 6:38 from beginning: "Time is one o five. The male in C-4 has been out..." Counter 117 = 9:34 from beginning: "Time twelve noon Friday June 26...recording B-4 aviary..." Counter 156 = 12:27 from beginning: "It's now four thirty in the afternoon of June 30th. I'm by B-4...I want to record the male's and female's flight call...Female seems to give one type...The male gives two types..." Counter 318 = 22:43 from beginning: "We're in B-4; going to test or record the young siskin nestling." Playback of adult flight calls used to elicit begging from young. Counter 403 = 26:48 from beginning: "For the remainder of this reel we'll be recording the female while being stimulated by her mate..."
