    Equipment Note

NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 9. Bulk reel: 371. Weather: cloudy, fair. The guans had been displaying since at least 5:15AM (moon) but I was busy trying to get close to C. alector. I started recording for the guans at 5:40AM very shortly there occurred a wing-whirr display followed by some hoarse calls. These sound a bit like marail but as in 3 trips to this area (as of Aug. 1968, when this tape is being edited) I have never found any sure indication that marail is here and as most sounds that have suggested its presence have been found to ceome from granti; I file this display and then calls here, until I have good reason to change them.
