Comments

This recording highlighted what appeared to be two unseen individuals of the species (in the area where there are typically three or four of these birds) that were apparently about 20 meters away and 15-18 meters up in the canopy of a tree that was somewhat isolated and more heavily vegetated than those often frequented by this species. This was recorded along the road near the clearing at the beginning of the spur road about a kilometer beyond the logging camp. Mostly clear but with a few scattered clouds, calm, 72° 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.
