NOTES: BNA: Song, Whistle (good quality, but announcements throughout).
LNS NOTE: Unbroken cut with internal recordist announcement/handling noise gain change (MJA, 21 March 2005); (Breeding Status: Breeding. Sound Delivery Rate: Low. Cover Density: None.) Male's Name: GO. A stuffed and mounted S. magna male (Oscar) was placed 1 m. from microphone. The microphone was connected to the recorder via a 70 meter cable (an effective antenna; thus the bucolic background). GO did head up and head down displays right beside dummy in long intervals between songs. Song types: l, j (high), b,1, j (high), p. Many songs overloaded but some good takes, especially of p. Intervals are deleted in this cut. Attack copied from original is included at end of this cut. Words up & down refer to where bill is pointing. Attack notes (flight song notes?) and whistles here.
