Neotropical Institute Cut # 4. NOTES: PART A (55 SEC.): PROB. SAME INDIVIDUAL AS IN 870. THE 'CLICKING' OF THE HENS CAN BE HEARD. THERE WERE 3-4 HENS FOLLOWING THE MALE. HE SEEMED TO PAY LITTLE ATTENTION TO THEM. THEY OCCASIONALLY SCUFFLED AMONG THEMSELVES AND DID NOT SEEM TO 1 MALE(S); 3 FEMALE(S)ACT AS A GROUP (LIKE DOMESTIC HENS) BUT RATHER AS INDIVIDUALS. NOT ALL 3-4 HENS WERE CONSTANTLY PRESENT; SOMETIMES ONLY 1 OR 2. PART B (LENGTH 3:13): AFTER PLAYBACK THE BIRDS MOVED CLOSER BUT THE MALE DIDN'T SEEM TO ALTER HIS TYPE OF 'SONG'. THE MALE MA. Elevation: 1000 m.
