A single tropicbird can be heard at approx. 1:09 at a distance of approx. 50 ft. Two more tropicbirds can be heard at approx. 1:35 flying almost directly over the microphone at approx. 20 ft. The Black Winged Petrel can be heard at approx. :37. It was following a Round Island Petrel towards the summit briefly and vocalizing before breaking away. The bird can be heard again at approx. 1:38. An undetermined amount of Round Island Petrels can be heard vocalizing in the background. And unseen number of Zebra Doves can be heard vocalizing in the background. LNS: 100Hz AUHipass filter applied in soundBlade.
