First segment: W/O is alone inside the feeder. At approx. 3:42, W/P flies to the feeder and lands on one of the exterior perches of it. It then, almost immediately, flies in the direction of the microphone and lands on the branch of a tree approx. 12 ft. from the mic and begins preening itself. It flies back to one of the exterior perches and enters. The two birds interact briefly before W/P exits and flies off. Second segment: W/P flies in and lands on one of the exterior perches, and begins preening. It enters the feeder very briefly and then returns to an exterior perch and continues preening. W/O is inside the feeder throughout. Third segment: W/P flies in and enters the feeder. W/O is already inside. The birds interact; I.e. hopping around inside close to one another and vocalizing. One of the birds exits the feeder at approx. 6:00 and the second bird exits at approx. 6:40.
