Media notes

Unseen bird was about 30 meters away and seemingly at about eye-level (possibly up on the bank or in a tree) at the far edge of a small pond about 1 km. beyond the logging camp. Essentially clear but with some ground fog, calm, 69° 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.
