    Equipment Note

NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 8. Bulk reel: 65
a) Weather: ?. This is a call new to me by this owl. It's similar to the "scream" that I so far identify with the female, but is of lower frequency. Quality: 1. Level: +5.
b) ~ 8:00 PM. Clear. Same place as a) and more calls of the same. With playback the calling bird came closer briefly but then moved away. A bird that came closer and "hooted"; its hoot seem to be of a "low"-voiced bird. Other events failed to disclose anything conclusive. However, there seemed also to be a third owl present.
