Natural song; probably same bird. Quality: 1-2. Level: +10.
Then 30 min. later, owl had changed position several times. Now seems to sing more quietly (no playback). Quality: 2. Level: +10.
I then tried playback, hoping to collect this bird, as its a new species for Venezuela. I[t] would not respond to the playback and many hours spent trying to pursue it were also fruitless.
