    Equipment Note

NOTES: Background: ANTHOCHAERA ZZZ (IMITATION BY MENURA NOVAEHOLLANDIAE ?); Range status: INTRODUCED; Weather: WIND; TEMPERATE MOUNTAIN RAINFOREST WITH ABUNDANT EPIPHYTES. THE MENURA NOVAEHOLLANDIAE I BELIEVE IS THE AUTHOR OF ALL BIRD VOCALIZATIONS IN THIS RECORDING EXCEPT, PERHAPS, THE ANTHOCHAERA ZZZ. IN ADDITION TO MANY OF ITS OWN NOTES AND AN IMITATION O 1 MALE(S)?F A CHAIN-SAW, THE MENURA NOVAEHOLLANDIAE CLEARLY IMITATES OTHER BIRDS, FOR EXAMPLE AT 0:58, 1:12, AND 1:29 IT GIVES AN IMITATION OF A STREPERA FULIGINOSA. EARLY AFTERNOON.
