From 6:00 to 6:20 AM I heard only one or two displays and isolated calls. At 6:20 this regular "ao" calling began; also display; then some conflict or "bother" vocalizations; then there is also some "grunt" calling such as in courtship. Quality: 2. Level: +5.
While I was changing reels of tape there was a display in this same area where birds being recorded. Then there are more "ao" calls (not saved) just like those previously recorded; then occasional conflict calling and some quiet whines (not saved but very noisy background); also one display (ao).
Then there are "ao" calls and conflict vocalizations. Quality: 3. Level: +5.
Conflict calling by a bird that flew up very close to where I was (calling due to area conflict, not to my presence). Quality: 1. Level: 0.
Then focus shift to background bird (briefly [sentence apparently unfinished by recordist]. Quality: 2. Level: +5.
