NOTES: A male seen relatively well using playback as it perched on thin, vertical stems about 2/3 meter up; bird was 6-10 meters away for this cut in relatively dense undergrowth at top of plateau; this cut was recorded after I whistled to the bird minimally, to which it seemed to approach giving the same song; the response to later playback by MCH was somewhat more agitated.
