NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 33. Bulk reel: 441
Weather: Thin foggy. A different bird from any recorded so far. Quality: 3. Level: -3. 209 tape. LN.
Note: This recording was made "incidentally." I was trying to record the Elaenia and this thrush was in the same focus and apparently closer. The recording is saved because this bird has as one of its motifs one used by a number of individuals here but which I never managed to record.
[Note re: quality:] All the cocks crowing were in the village of El Valle, ~ 1-2 km away but in the focus-line of the reflector.
