NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 8. Bulk reel: 125
a) One natural song. Two birds had been song-duelling across an open space. I recorded only this one song before the birds became quiet. Quality: 1. Level: 0.
b) After playback of that song, the birds started again. #1 in foreground #2 in background (a third bird is still farther in background. Quality: 1. Level: +3.
Then focus changes so that #2 is in foreground, #1 in background. Note the differences in speed of delivery between the two birds.
c) Now with #1 back in focus again. Last part recorded intentionally @ low gain. Quality: 1, 0. Level: +3, +7.
