Comments

The first bird flies and lands on a branch approx. 15 ft. directly above the mic. It then flies laterally to another tree and lands on a branch approx. 15 ft. away from the original branch. The second bird flies in and lands on a branch in a different tree, approx. 15 ft. from the first bird, and 25 ft. from the ground. Shortly after the second bird lands, at approx. :37, the first bird begins to vocalize. the second bird moves and becomes obscured. (NOTE: in this recording, the bird is possibly responding to PLAYBACK. The track being played was from Claude Chappuis and Pierre Huguet's Birds Of Madagascar And Indian Ocean Islands: Disc III, track 31 (Mauritius Bulbul).
