    Equipment Note

NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 21. Bulk reel: 239Weather: Clear, fair, windy. Two-figure song, probably by same lower-voiced bird, presumably male, as in 20). Bird in same place and has been singing periodically throughout day. It is now singing from a perch ~ 2 m. high, hidden inside the vegetation.Continued @ 3 3/4 LN. After playback the bird began singing multi-figure phrases, apparently normal in pattern but given very quietly. After some minutes (recording not all saved due wind noise) it began interspersing two-figure phrases, also given quietly, then changed to this pattern definitely.After some whistled imitation by me, the bird flew up to a perch in full view, gave some odd quiet calls and some bill snaps, then flew to another tree.I whistled approximate imitation of female song and bird flew right back to near me and began ~ normal two-figure song. When I could see the bird, its alulas were not extended. I tried whistling female song, both drawn-out and normal two-figure, also some multi-figure song, but the bird just continued singing its +/- normal two-figure song (bit of Cut 22). Quality: 1. Level: 0.
