NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 2. Bulk reel: 206; piping,wing; piping; Extra cut(s) on bulk reel: 207; Extra cut length: 11:14Weather: Mountain variable. 139 tape.a) "Peep" calls, apparently by a young bird. Also, "grunt-calls" that apparently correspond to similar calls used by other guans in courtship activity. Then, after flight sound, calls of both young and adult. (Birds foraging after they flew by me; two adults and one young (nearly full grown, but smaller than adult.) Quality: 2. Level: +3. 139 tape.From lack of it when birds flew over me, it seems possible this species does not have a "flight scream."b)1815hr. Weather: Foggy. "Courtship growls." Two birds doing this (males?) and whines (other bird(s)(female?)). Quality: 1. Level: +3.c)1845hr. Weather: Light fog. This recorded later and is copy @3.75ips from the original recording @7.5ips to save for the record. Quality: 2. Level: 0. 3.75 ips.Focused on three guans, sitting in full view, now nearly dark. Mostly flight sounds but some calls. VOICE COMMENTS. apparently a pair and a young bird. High peeping by youngg bird which keeps pressing up against a larger bird (male?) as if "begging." In last part there is more active calling, the meaning of which I don't know. Quality: 1-2. Level: 0.
