GW, the voice-over narration (not the researcher's) could be misleading, as the narrator incorrectly attributed the "high-pitched" sounds to the wing sounds of the Manakins, when they are actually vocal calls from another bird in the background. Manakins have expanded shafts on their wing feathers that they can clap together like castanets to make the lower pitched rattling or clicking sounds that you could hear on the sound track. None of this is really new discovery, but it is just much better demonstration and documentation than we have had in the past.

That's interesting Pen. Its too bad that misinformation gets so much attention now days due to the internet. Thank goodness we have folks like yourself that can put the record strait!
I still liked the moonwalk with the music.
