NOTES: On way back up hill (to Foreatiere) heard a M. fuscus singing. With some slow stalking managed to get close to its tree. Things quite wet so could move silently and could slip under the banana trees without disturbing the bird. Finally got a good clear, long sequence of M. fuscus song. The bird was singing in lower limbs of aa mango tree. I played back some of the songs a good strong response. The bird flew down into the banama and upon seeming me did a quick exit. Did not come down again but returned to mango tree and sang loudly (for and M. fuscus). This is the first positive response I have gotten to playback with these birds. Normally they will look but do nothing or will depart. The trembler too is not overly sensitive to playback, at least so for. While recording the M. fuscus, gusts of wind swept over ther Forestiere ridge and towards end, rain began. The M. fuscus kept singing. Finally it stopped as the shower let up. Returned to Forestiere.-----
