    Equipment Note

NOTES: EARLY MORNING. A SAD DESCENDING TRILL MONOTONOUSLY REPEATED. THIS IS THE COMMON SONG. IN ADDITION IT OFTEN GIVES A CLEAR 'PEEAWEE PEEAWU' - THIS SECOND SONG IS NOT MENTIONED IN ANY BOOKS I HAVE. BIRD SAT STILL 20-40 FT UP IN TREE; OCCASIO Age: 2-3 UNKNOWN AGE; Sex: UNKNOWNNALLY FLUTTERED WINGS. COLLURICINCLA HARMONICA MELODIUS SONG AT ABOUT 4 AND 21 SECONDS FROM START. MELIPHAGA LEWINII STACCATA CALL AT ABOUT 32 SEC. FROM START. RAVEN CALLS LIKE SICK CHILD IN DISTANCE.

ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Cacomantis flabelliformis pyrrophanus to Cacomantis flabelliformis to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
