NOTES: Two parts, the first natural ending at 7:32 and the second after playback of itself at 7:38. For both parts, unseen bird was 15 m away and 2-3 m up in relatively dense undergrowth along back part of forest loop trail behind hotel. Response to playback was to go quiet and apparently fly back and forth by me, but never getting very close. The songs given were the same. Never seen, not even flying by. Full, dense overcast. Copied with HPF@200 Hz.
