    Equipment Note

NOTES: General climate: DRY; T.M. STIGMATOTHORAX. THORN BUSH. HAVE TRIED TO DISENTANGLE CALLS OF THIS SPECIES AND TRICHOLAEMA LACRYMOSUM, BUT THEY ARE VERY SIMILAR. THIS SPECIES PREFERS DRY THORN BUSH, T. LACRYMOSUM, GREENER LUSHER VEGETATION. THIS SPECIES HAS 3 CALLS/SONGS SO FAR AS I KNOW: 1) SHORT HARSH CHATTER IN RHYTHM 'LITTLE SLACKER'; HARD TO OBTAIN; POSSIBLE GREETING. 2) DEEPER HARSH SINGLE CALL: 'CHAH- CHAH - CHAH'. 3) SHORT QUICK COO USED AT BREEDING TIME (?); RESEMBLES T. DIADEMATUM COO. 1ST RECORDING HERE INC
