NOTES: This species is commonly found in the moist foothill forests of Pilon Lajas and Madidi so it is interesting that it is also known from dry forests of the Tuiochi valley

A trail travelling down from Apolo 2400 to 1000. The mull trail follows the edge of the rivers travelling through dry forest and moist small river valleys. The area is a peculiar rain shadow dry forest remanent containing many bird species found in lower altitude and latitude dry forests of Dept. of Santa Cruz. The areas is isolated and has a high plant endimism and predicted high bird endimism- but that has not been found to be true. Published studies of area are Perry et al 1997- Birds of the Central Rio Tuichi Valley with emphasis on dry forest, Madidi NP. Ornithol Monogr. 48:557-576; Pearman M 1993, The avifauna of the Rio Machariapo dry forest, northern La Paz, Bolivia , Bird Conservation International 3: 105-117; and with mention in CI working papers #1 and with additional birds an notes to be published in Ornitologia Neotropical by myself 2002.
