[[zig-zag mark]]  iedly vigourous retreat movements.  5:10

Then when Spider Monkey leaves, Osk starts to move around cage again.  Again with single MGB's.

Is the MGB purely a locomotory pattern????? Functioning as a contact note?????

Osk also utters single S Trll's, occasionally, in between its MGB's as it moves.

This combination of MGB's and S Trll's with movement is quite reminiscent of the behavior of juvenile White faces in the wild.

Osk continues behaving like this, uttering MGB's and S Trll's exploring its cage, for quite a long while.  Still doing so 5:40.

Every once in a while utters a sudden burst of 3 or 4 S Trll's, all together.  Usually or always when I make a sudden movement. Apparently alarm.  But must contain a relatively weaker alarm component than the MO-AlB-Q patterns.

The softest single S Trll's are presumably produced when motivation is actually very weak.  But the bursts of S Trll's sound quite high intensity.

Once Osk utters a burst of short BB notes.  [[underlined]] Without [[/underlined]] Lsh's.  Apparently directed to me (but certainly not provoked by any sudden move on my part.

Sometimes Osk gets quite close to José in the course of its wanderings.  But it doesn't display.  Just looks at José.  Not even frowning or raising eyebrows or Ton!

Then Osk approaches José twice more.  Each time puts hand out, and tentatively touches José on back.  Int. mov of social grooming?  Quite silent.  Each time José just runs away.

Then I go in to do a little experimenting with José Stop wat

Transcription Notes:
Discovered on another page that Osk is short for Oskar, so I changed all Orks to Osk. Also discovered that Lsh = Lateral shaking of head, so I changed all Lili to Lsh.
