    Equipment Note

NOTES: L.F. MAJOR.AT REED INLET, 30M SOUTH OF HIPPO POOL, WHERE A PAIR OF THESE BIRDS WAS CALLING CONSTANTLY WITHIN A SMALL AREA AND I THINK ALL THE CALLS HERE WERE BY THIS PAIR THOUGH I CAN'T BE QUITE CERTAIN, AS THEY WERE NOTCOLOR RINGED. THE PITCH COMPASS OF THIS PAIR, TYPICAL PERHAPS OF RACEMAJOR, BY EAR, SEEMS TO BE CONSIDERABLE - FROM G FLAT (740HZ) TO D FLAT (2216HZ), 19 SEMITONES OR 1 1/2 OCTAVES. THE LAST 3 SONG TYPES ARE HUMAN IMITATION BY THE RECORDIST ON A DESCANT RECORDER. THIS CUT WAS DERIVED FROM LNS 8741, 8745, AND 8746. EXTENSIVE NOTES ON TAPE. SEE NOTES ON TAPE OF LNS 8729 AS WELL. THIS CUT IS RRN MEWN B.46-47.
