    Equipment Note

NOTES: The first part of this recording has one ÒchatterÓ call at 0:21 by an unseen bird; the second part highlights ÒchurÓ calls by these same birds about 10-12 m away and low in undergrowth (both birds were seen in the immediate vicinity by Joraci Jos¿ Grigolo); the third part clearly highlighted ÒchurÓ calls by the male, seen 10 m away and on or near the ground; it tended to hop on the ground and run along horizontal trunks (no additional playback prior to this recording); both birds were again present for the last two parts, now 15 m away; one somewhat decapitated song and some chattering in middle of last file; I saw the male repeatedly while recording these cuts but I saw the female only as we were leaving (just before the last part); all of these recordings were made in response to playback of prerecorded tape from Alta Floresta production by Luciano N. Naka; the male was most aggressive in its response to playback with the female generally lagging somewhat behind and not overly responsive; recorded in understory of good, terra firme forest along small side road that left the Aguas Claras Road about 300 m beyond the clearing; the vegetation here was quite dense, with some bamboo and many vines in the understory but it was open enough in places allow us to obtain reasonable views of the birds; this recording combines six files (#CAR126-131), files CAR128 and CAR130 are announcements.
