NOTES: Recorded here are "chuck" calls of male that was initially seen about eight meters away and six meters up, and later about 15 meters and a bit higher; bird was associated with a mixed-species flock over a known Phaethornis lek in an area with taller trees in generally rather scrubby, terra firme forest.
ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Vireo olivaceus chivi to Vireo olivaceus chivi/diversus to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
