NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 8. Bulk reel: 26Weather: Clear, with thin cloud mask. Bird seen only momentarily as a silhouette (flying and sitting) against dawn sky. Identification is by voice.I heard the bird calling in the background while I was recording Ortalis motmot. The first part of this cut is from that recording. Quality: 3. Level: +10.I then started playing the field tape I had prepared with songs and calls of M. ruficollis from Rancho Grande, Jeremba, and the Andes. The bird flew in immediately and alighted for a moment in a practically leafless tree by my side. Then it flew to a foliaged tree where I could not see it and again sang the repeated single-note bark. I recorded this and continued recording, hoping bird would change to "stress" or "dawn" song. Quality: 1-2. Level: +3.Just as I decided I'd better "reinforce" the bird with more playback, it stopped calling, flew much farther away (in opposite direction from which originally heard) and could not be brought back, no mattter what I played.
