NOTES: THESE PAURAQUES CAME AT DUSK TO THEIR USUAL SPOT ON THE ROAD TO FEED.THE RECORDING BEGINS WITH A GROAN AND A 'PWIT-PWIT-PWIT' FROM THE SCRUB AS ONE BIRD BECAME ACTIVE AND THEN THE FLIGHT TO THE ROAD, BEING JOINED SHORTLY AFTERWARDS BY THE SECOND BIRD. I HAVE INCLUDED HERE A BRIEF RECORDING (MADE ON 26FEB76 FROM 0540-0600) MADE AT DAWN OF PROBABLY ONE OF THE SAME BIRDS. THIS PAURAQUE LANDED IN A BUSH ABOUT 4M AWAY AND VOCALIZED A FEW TIMES BEFORE FLYING AWAY. LATER IT, OR ANOTHER, LANDED ON THE GROUND BESIDE ME AND VOCALIZED, FINALLY FLYING AWAY STILL CALLING. ROAD THROUGH THORN SCRUB. Sex: 2 UNKNOWN
LNS: 250 Hz AUHipass filter applied in soundBlade to first, second, and fourth segments of recording.
