Playback was used at the end just prior to my annotation which indicates this "a very long song etc." Also the sound of L.L. Short talking. This male was ringed #134 the following year. A different male sang and there has been singing here each year since. The loss of the first tree necessitated a change of tree but this now has been usesd for three years until the elephants get that too.
