NOTES: EACH EVENING AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME FIRST ONE AND THEN A SECOND PAURAQUE LANDED IN A ROAD AT DUSK TO HUNT INSECTS SILHOUETTED AGAINST THE EVENING SKY. THOUGH RATHER QUIET WHEN ALONE, THE TWO BIRDS VOCALIZED STEADILY WHEN TOGETHER. I HAVE ADDED A BIT OF A RECORDING MADE AN HOUR LATER BENEATH AN ELECTRIC LAMP, POSSIBLY BY THE SAME BIRDS. AGAIN ONE BIRD ARRIVED FIRST, THEN THE SECOND; ONE OF THE TWO BIRDS LEFT LEAVING THE OTHER ALONE. ROAD THROUGH THORN SCRUB AND ROAD BY DWELLINGS. RECORDED AT 1815 AND 1915 HOURS. Sex: 2 UNKNOWN
LNS: 200 Hz AUHipass filter applied in soundBlade to first, second, and fourth segments.
