NOTES: (Recordist's Tape #23B, 24A. Time: 1035-1745. Bkground Sounds: Wind. Gen. Climate: Humid. Gen. Habitat: Dwarf forest. ) Notes later on the day at the same time by Barbara Temple are photocopied and included. Also sese Edit Book Mau II pp. 17, 18, 19, 20, 21. Also field notebook pp. 53, 54. The pair were constructing a nest and the calls and songs around it are recorded. Female will respond to the male with a buzz-plick call. She does have a very faint song (weak) but many of the calls are shared. Prior to the "1500 hrs" male and female are heard, the female with a harsh buzz call in answer to the male. "Splutter-plick" and " chew-chew."
Stan Temple told me of the approach of the female. The male called as she came to nest, but she buzz calls in answer to his chew-chew whew call.
