NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 3. Bulk reel: 11 a) Calls. I believe of this species but initial editing notes say only "ducks" and as this is being filed 10/1/66, I don't remember for certain if there was only this species present, but I think so (other possibility would be Anas discors). Quality: 1-2. Level: 0.311 tape. b) Same at 7.5 ips with some additional kinds of "talk" (~14 ducks ~300 m. away. By now it was practically dark.) Quality: 1-2. Level: +5. 111 tape. Copy from original at 15 ips. Filter 200/6 kHz. LNS: Subject changed from Anas flavirostris to A. andium to reflect current taxonomy. -Matt Medler, 22 Sept 2010. Number of individuals=UU1+;.
