a)4:35 PM. "Focus" is on a lower voiced bird; a higher voiced bird is behind me and is heard in the background of this recording. Qualtiy: 2-. Level: +3.
Then "focus" changes to the higher voiced bird. The lower voiced bird is in background and there are also heard some calls of C. soui. Quality: 2. level: +3.
b) Now focused on the, or a, lower-voiced bird some time later. Quality: 1-2. Level: +3. 3.75 ips.
When I changed to 7.5, the bird apparently had moved out of focus. Quality: 2-. Level: +3. 7.5 ips.
Focus on the, or a, higher-voiced bird later. Quality: 1-2. Level: 0. 3.75 ips.
When I changed to 7.5 ips the bird began singing softly. Quality: 2. Level: +3. 7.5 ips.
Then are heard some sounds that I can't identify, but as they came from the position of the tinamou, I wonder if they could be of the tinamous (courtship or perhaps young birds?). Quality: 2. Level: +3. 3.75 ips.
