Comments

Unseen bird was initially about 35-40 meters away and 30 meters up in the canopy of a relatively tall tree at the edge of terra firme forest along the spur road about 1 1/2 kilometers beyond the logging camp and right at the entrance to the forestry plots. The second part of this cut was recorded after playback (after which it switched trees, though it was unclear if this was the result of the playback), with the bird now 30 meters away and almost 30 meters directly overhead in a different tree and giving only calls. We eventually located this bird and managed to get relatively good looks at it from below as it was perched in the shade on a small, horizontal branch in the canopy. Partly cloudy, consistently breezy, 85-86° F. Equipment Notes: Sennheiser powered using phantom power and with filter in flat position and attenuator off for all recordings. Nagra input set at 2 mV / Pa and low-pass filter in flat position unless noted otherwise.
