Field Frame Friday: Early mornings

IMG_0151Jungle breakfasts are usually creative: most gibbon groups begin singing as the sun rise, so breakfast is always eaten in the dark and often accompanied with a beautiful chorus. Each morning, we did fixed acoustic surveys based off two observers in order to triangulate group locations and estimate gibbons densities within our field site.  Pictured next to me is a Marantz PND660 recorder and an omnidirectional microphone, used to capture ambient acoustics.
