a) 8 July 1976. 6:50 PM. Elevation: 425 m. Weather: Foggy. Bird #5. Type 3. High voice. Qualitiy: 2-3. Level: +3. 209 tape. LN.
This bird slightly uphill from road. Would not decoy closer, probably because of the latel hour. The spot is 200-300 m. down the road from that of Cuts M-1 & M-4.
b) 9 July 1976. 6:00 PM to 6:10 PM. Elevation: 450 m. Weather: Foggy, windy. Apparently the same bird but now at ~ same place as Birds 1 & 4, although on the uphill side of the road. Also it was +/- accompanied by a number of other birds (~4-6!), most of which probably females, although perhaps some (young) males in the group. Quality: 2-3. Level: +3. 209 tape. LN.
