NOTES: (Number of Animals and Sex: adult males and females; Weather: a clear sunny morning with a hard ground frost) HPF 220Hz. The ringing "tweet tweet" calls give way to the calls that are similar to Coracina typica of Mauritius - a mix of aggression and male female interaction. Likely there was still here "a lone" male [we had seen/heard 2 males earlier in the week]. Playback was used initially - then not so; the last sequence with the male and female, and likely another male, was natural.
