    Equipment Note

NOTES: BIRDS CALLING HIGH IN TREES. FLUTE SONG AND SCOLD FOLLOW. FLUTE SONG RESEMBLES THAT OF ORIOLUS LARVATUS BUT IS OF THREE NOTES DROPPING IN PITCH AND VERY SHORT. THE SCOLD ALSO DROPS IN PITCH AND IS MOST DISTINCTIVE. ML: Subject changed from Oriolus nigripennis to O. percivali based on the recommendation of James Bradley. -Matt Medler, 12 Feb 2014.
