NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 23. Bulk reel: 107
Weather: Cloudy, fair. Natural song, one phrase. At beginning is an excited series call by Synallaxis (Poecilurus) candei. Note: This song (of the antshrike) is different from the central and eastern birds!! cf Cut 15 [LNS 61716] for similar type song. Quality: 1-. Level: 0. 3.75 ips. 139 tape. Std.
Then after playback of that phrase, more song (all by female). Quality: 1. Level: 0. 3.75 ips. 139 tape. Std.
Bird's first reaction to playback, and on one later playback, unfortunately not recorded, was a series purr call something like the "alternate song" of Thamnophilus punctatus from west of Andes (or like cuts 19 or 18?). Quality: 1. Level: 0, +2. 139 tape. 7.5 ips. Std.
Bird then collected = female #[blank].
