Then a bird flies down to another perch; this apparently was the female. (Toward end she flies again and is in full view; she gives some quiet calls too.)In all last part of this section the male does not use the final motif of the phrase. (Previously he omitted it occasionally. At very end he used it again and then gave some "grunts.")Cut 7 is @ posit.
