NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 9. Bulk reel: 403. Cloudy; was clear during night; full moon. Two-note call (by a female, presumably). Quality: 2. Level: +5. This is after whistled imitation but the bird had been singing naturally. See Cut 32 of Penelope argyrotis.
Playback brought both flight and vocal reaction one time (not recorded) but no more after that.
Note: The male had been heard singing down new bridge in mid-May.
Note: See Sporophila schistacea Cut 1 for record of song (male) at Rancho Grande 12/VII/70. Heard again 7:00 PM 17/VII/70.
