This is probably the same bird as in cuts 2, 3, & 5d). It is to west of me, up the ridge, i.e. where it usually starts before coming down to tree overhead.
After a number of songs it planed down (~ 5:20 AM) to its perch a bit beyond me. (The whoosh is audible in the recording.) and sang two songs only (one included here), then went further down the ridge, sang a few times and then became silent.
No displays heard by aburri at any time this AM (although there were many by argyrotis but not in my immediate area.).
Note: At the beginning are heard some ascending, series whistles like those of P. argyrotis in this immediate area. Consideration must be given to these whistles perhaps being of aburria. However, it is not being given by the aburri that is singing its normal song (overlap one place) [recordist drew arrow here pointing to word "aburria" in above sentence. Quality: 2. Level: +5. [Recordist did not indicate type of microphone used. He indicated that he used a parabola but did not specify make/model.]
