    Equipment Note

NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 11. Bulk reel: 65
Weather: Fair. One bird was giving "low hoots" fairly near to me and another "high hoots" at some distance. I played Cut 8b) and shortly from near the "low hoot" bird came two or three "low screams" but apparently by another bird. Not recorded. Quality: 1-2. Level: +5.
After further playback, only the "low hoot" bird was heard in ~ same position and another bird started giving "high screams" from the other side of the road. It may have been same bird that gave the "low screams."
Further playback did not bring this any closer. Then two other birds are heard in background; one gives "very high" screams and the other what seem to be "low hoots." I believe they are probably a neighboring pair.
