    Equipment Note

NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 2. Bulk reel: 407
203 tape.
a) 10:50 AM. Weather: Foggy. Natural single-figure succession song and then some "alternate" or complex song. Quality: 2+. Level: +3. 7.5 ips.
b) 3:10 PM. High fog. Single-figure succession song. Quality: 1-2. Level: 0. 7.5 ips.
This is then continued @ 15 ips; there is also an alternate song in first 30" (also a flight sound faintly near end). Quality: 1, 1-2. Level: 0.
There was at least three of these birds in the area. When this bird (the only one recorded and observed closely) was alone it sang sitting in a normal perching position but when one or another of the other birds was also nearby singing, this bird would sing with its wings held straight out and its tail fanned out.
