Same bird as cut #99-14-07 after playback of itself; bird was initially 15 meters (relatively high) up in trees and about 18 meters away, but later 12 meters away and only 10 meters (about half way) up in tree with dense vine tangles; partly cloudy, breezy, 83¡ F; bird was eventually seen well as it did circles around me in response to tape playback; in addition to its approach to playback, the bird often sang, but also gave "jit-jit" calls; recorded ca. 3 km. out road towards Jaguar¿ (19¡01Õ47" S, 40¡09Õ34" W).
