Marbled Frogmouth - Podargus ocellatus meeki William Goulding 2014-12-22 Milne Bay Province, Sudest (Papua New Guinea) (<10 m) call, orthopteran in background -

Unmodified recording of more than one individual (my notes say a pair) in the understory layer not far from a creek. This species has quite a few vocalisations but in this recording they start with the short 'op-op' building up to the more typical trill and claps. Quietly at the end there are some odd vocalisations.
