NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 25. Bulk reel: 45
Weather: Fair to clear. A bird was heard singing when I arrived but then stopped by the time I could get set up. After some wait, I played the field tape (Rancho Grande birds) and this brought two birds into song. Quality: 2. Level: +5. Quality: 1-2. Level: 0.
The "in-focus" bird proved to be a brown phase (or at least dark) bird similar to that of Cut 25. I shot it but it escaped wounded and at night with the very difficult terrain I couldn't find it. Then after some playback had a bird that seemed fairly certain of being the bird in the background of the recording come to almost the same perch and it was collected, rufous phase (= male #6647).
