Song type 1 = SO-SOO-la; 2 = SO-SO-LA; 3 = SO-LAA.
Weather: Clear, fair, somewhat windy. Type 3 bird brought in close by my whistling type 1 phrases. In between the loud type 3 phrases are heard some quiet phrases by this bird or by another (a female?) with it. (These have +/- same amplitude on the recording as the background tinamous that are heard and should not be confused with them), and some of these closely approach type 1 phrases except that the whistle is continuous, not broken into distinct figures. Beware also of confusing the print-through from my loud whistles. Quality: 2. Level: 0. 203 tape. LN. Filtered 300/4000 Hz.
At very end I added a small bit of the first, unfiltered, copy from the SN (from the last part).
In this I have edited out my loud whistles and their corresponding print-through. Quality: 2. Level: 0. 3.75 ips. LN. Not filtered.
On the way back down, at ~190 m altitude, I heard a type 3 that sounded closer than others. I began whistling a type 1 phrase and the bird came right up to me. Throughout the whole time I whistled only type 1, or when the bird was close I whistled several imitations of the quiet calls being given by the bird (or another with it? perhaps a female?) in between its loud type 3 phrases. Although these quiet calls were of various kinds and warbles, including some phrasees that were very close to type 1, the loud phrases were al lof type 3, with an occasional one slightly modulated in the second figure so that it suggested type 2 (unfortunately none of these were recorded, although it and one or two phrases slightly suggest it: cut 21). But cf. Cut 22b!!
