    Equipment Note

This bird had a nest in the vicinity and called whenever anyone approached the area. I have not been able to detect any difference in calls I have recorded in the Kermadec Islands, a New Zealand northland kauri forest, or the birds around my home in Nelson, South Island. The Nelson birds quickly responded to playback of the others. No filtering on copy.

Habitat: Sea level forest.
