NOTES: Calls recorded in two parts at 8:19 and 8:24; bird had obviously reddish edges to primaries that contrasted with whitish fringes to secondaries, and apparently some reddish in the tail; a large bird with a large bill; recorded right near a small "bridge" over a small igarap¿; clearly not the same as the birds in cuts #99-89-05 and #99-89-06; bird was 25-30 meters away and 25 meters up in open, recently deforested area; at the end, the bird was 30 meters away and 25 meters up in open, dead branches of a tree along road; a pair was again present; though size, shape, and plumage generally looked good for this species, I never definitely saw reddish in tail; slight breeze.
ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Ramphastos tucanus cuvieri to Ramphastos tucanus to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
