NOTES: Habitat: In the headwaters of the Rio Poyeni, on a small flat bench. Worded 2-3km in all directions except north from campsite near sphagnum bog. Streams largely flowed underground, below rocks and the rootmat, surfacing occasionally. Our camp was in bamboo thicket over a ground water sheet next to a section of exposed stream.
Tech Note: HPF @ 250Hz
Weather: Mist, causing dripping in forest
Note: description of bird on tape 41.
Note: On LNS reel, sounds from 0:00 - 1:58 from Tape 40; sounds from 1:58 - 9:50 from Tape 41. Why is this? Because Tom used sounds from Tape 40 (July 2) as playback, and taped the owl's responses on Tape 41. This is the case for the first half of Tape 41. The second half of Tape 41 is also O. ingens, taped on the next day, July 3. (LNS 92658); this completes Tape 41. The next cut (LNS 92659) is also O. ingens from July 3; Tom used the rest of Tape 40 to record the early morning of July 3. Tom's notes explaining all this are on Tape 40, approx 6 or 8 minutes into Side A. mf
