NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 12. Bulk reel: 138
Weather: Fair. 203 tape.
a) These are apparently the "bother" calls of this species. I didn't see the bird, but they are ~ like the description in Cut 8); also playback of this brought (apparently) a song reaction as recorded in b). (See also Weske's recordings.)
Note: These calls were being given "naturally." The bird had apparently remained +/- same spot for some time but then moved farther away. (Was this the female?) Playback had no apparent effect but then later a bird started singing the song in b). After the bird started to sing and before I started to record b), I gave [sentence/paragraph unfinished by recordist]. Quality: 1-2. Level: +5. 3.75 ips.
b) Song that probably results from playback of a). Note that this song is ~ like Weske's Peruvian bird, which is very slightly different from Rio Grande. Quality: 2 & 1-2. Level: +5. 3.75 ips.
c) Now after playback. Quality: 1. Level: +5. 3.75 ips.
Then ~ 15-20 songs later. Quality: 1. Level: +5.
Cont. at 7.5 ips.
This bird then collected = R.G. #[recordist left a blank space here].
