[On] Dec. 2, 1970, ~ midway between Cumana and Carmanacoa, Sucre, I purchased four birds: one male adult and three female-plumaged birds. These were brought to Rancho Grande. These recordings are of the male which was kept in a separate small cage and began to sing 8 Dec. (That was the first I noticed song.) Quality: "1" to 1 (most are 1). Level: +10. 7.5 & 15 ips.b) 12 Dec 1970. 6:15 to 8:30 AM. Dromococcyx pavoninus in background. Quality: 1. Level: +3.Calls and "short song"; also some single and double calls; also some triple. "Typical" short phrases.12 Dec 1970. 9:15 to 10:00 AM. Weather: Clear. Various short songs, "typical" short phrases and calls. Quality: 1. Level: 0. 15 ips. LN.10:25 to ~11:00 AM. First 2-2.5' is a very good sequence with short songs, "typical" short phrases, long song phrases. Quality: 1. Level: 0. LN.After this is good, too, but mostly long song phrases and relatively continuous song. Some of this at the beginning was after playback.11:00 AM to ~11:30 AM. Continued from above with long song phrases and continuous song. During last few minutes there are shorter phrases again. Quality: 1. Level: 0 to -3. 15 ips. LN.12 Dec 1970. ~ noon. Long song phrases and ~ continuous song. Quality: 1. Level: 0.This is @ slightly lower gain than previous recordings and therefore is almost free of any distortion (tape saturation) that occasionally occurs in previous recordings. (Note: last song is an example of one containing several motifs similar to those used by S. intermedia; some songs before it are app. schistacea's peculiar type.)
