NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 4. Bulk reel: 214
a) Two songs by a bird probably different from that recorded so far. Quality: 2. Level: +7.
b) One song and one display by a distant bird. Quality: 3. Level: +7.
Comments on cut 4: I was on site from 5:00 AM. During the whole time no bird came to this ridge. However, there were ~ six birds within hearing range in different directions. Up to 6:30 AM, no display heard from aburria, although I heard both calls and displays (frequent) by P. argyrotis. However, ~ 6:32 I did hear a display by aburra which was also incidentally recorded. No other display by aburria was heard this AM.
At 6:30 AM I could begin to discern forms inside the forest.
