    Equipment Note

NOTES: A singing male that was well seen 15-18 meters away and 10 meters (3/4 of the way) up amid an active nesting colony with at least ten birds present and many nests in a large pine tree at the edge of the lodge clearing not far above the level of flooded igap¿; the male displayed by hunching its back over, pointing the bill downward, fluttering the back feathers out, and at times quivering the wings; the singing bird, presumably a male, was noticeably larger than many of the other birds present, which were presumably females; these birds were moving about quite a bit, the male less so than the others, and regularly entering and exiting the nests; Legatus leucophaius was at times chasing the caciques and singing; mostly cloudy, calm, mid-70s.
