    Equipment Note

NOTES: (Recordist's Tape #S83-02, cut #B357. Species Sound: Frequent. Range Status: Introduced. Gen. Climate: Humid. Cover Density: Medium. Noise Reduction System: Dolby. Copy Recorder: ATR-100. Bias: High. Equalization: 70 microseconds) Three birds evidently calling back and forth here. One is on parabola axis, others audible in background. Welder Refugs is just north of normal range of Chachalaca; 12 individuals were released here in 1981 or 1982. These birds on tape presumably are from those 12 birds.

BNA: Several birds giving the "Loud Call" often described as cha-cha-lac. CZ 29/01/2004.
