NOTES: Unseen bird was 15-18 m away and low (probably 1/2 to 1 m up) in the moderately open understory of good, terra firme forest about 250 m out the trail; I heard this species calling and looked up and saw a female perched about 1/2 m up; it then flew off, but subsequent playback of songs and calls from the Alta Floresta master tape resulted in a bird approaching somewhat, moving around me, calling, and giving two or three songs, but I never saw the bird again; I could not determine whether one or two birds were present, but it sounded like only one bird was calling, so it is likely but not certain that these calls were all given by the female that I saw [= RCR190, RCR191 (in part, announcement)].
