Comments

This recording highlighted the more complex calls and I think were given by the female, which at the time appeared to be a about 25 meters away and about 20 meters up at the edge of the road just inside good terra firme forest, now along the main road near its intersection with the short spur road. I did briefly point the parabola the second bird, but I never got much in the way of a signal, probably both because of my distance from the bird and the fact that it's vocalizations were somewhat lower in frequency. In response to playback, the apparent female highlighted here twice flew back-and-forth over the road. Perfectly clear with many stars, calm, about a two thirds moon high in the sky. ML: 75 Hz high-pass scientific filter applied in Adobe Audition CC 2015. 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.
