    Equipment Note

NOTES: AFTER LEARNING THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL ALLOWED ME TO SIT LESS THAN 2M FROM ONE OF HIS LOWEST SONG SITES I TRIED MAKING A SERIES OF RECORDINGS AT THIS DISTANCE. THE BIRD WAS NOT TRULY COOPERATIVE. SOMETIMES HE ARRIVED SINGING AND SOMETIMES HE LEFT SINGING BUT WHILE ON THE PERCH HE SAT FOR LONG PERIODS WITHOUT SINGING. CONSEQUENTLY ONLY A FEW SONGS ARECOMPLETE. THETHRUM OF WINGS INDICATES ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE AND SOME SHORT BURSTS INDICATE A CHANGE OF POSITION. OCCASIONALLY THE SHAKING OF FEATHERS CAN BE HEARD. BRUSH INTERSPERSED WITH OPEN AREA OF GRASS AND FORBS. RECORDED BETWEEN 0900-1000 HOURS.
