Media notes

NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 4. Bulk reel: 145 a) 7:40 AM. Vocal reaction to playback of Cut 3. A "long trill" somewhat modified and later interrupted into shorter bits. Quality: 1. Level: 4.5. b) 8:30 AM. A repeat of playback an hour later brought this reaction: song more nearly approached normal, except the fake starts, and some bother notes near end. The final song following the bother notes is a typical normal song. Quality: 1. Level: 4. LNS: Reclassified from S. latebricola to S. meridanus based on identification by Tom Schulenberg. -M. Medler, 12 March 2009.
