Sennheiser powered using phantom power and with filter in flat position and attenuator off for all recordings. Nagra input set at 2 mV / Pa and low-pass filter in flat position unless noted otherwise.
Calls by a pair of birds that were initially perched about 35-40 meters away and 35 meters up in terra firme forest about 18 kilometers out the main road through the logging concession in which narrow rows of tall trees were interspersed with strips in which the trees had been recently removed [08° 13’ 27.4” N, 61° 43’ 46.8” W, 276 m]. Although these birds were perched for most of this recording, they did a loop flight together during the second part of the recording. Partly cloudy, 5-10 knot breeze, 85° F.
