NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 12. Bulk reel: 176
Natural song. Quality: 1. Level: +2.
Same after playback. Bird first started singing so quietly could barely be heard (only a bit of this was recorded). Then level of song builds up to normal.
(In last part hear Pachyramphus albogriseus and faintly Myioborus miniatus.)
Note that bird's bill is scarecly open while singing; apparently ~ 3 mm. space @ tip.
