NOTES: This recording represents a continuation of cut #2000-33-09 after playback of two songs, in response to which the bird twice zipped by me low (ca. 1 m up) in the understory, once almost hitting me as it went by, and it gave a loud chatter, but it typically flew well back into the forest before landing so I was unable to see it well (though what I did see, a medium-sized, darkish brown bird with a wing whirring, is consistent with this species); it eventually began singing again while I changed tape and was now 12-15 meters away and 1-2 meters up in tall terra firme forest with a few relatively large trees and a relatively open understory with many palms and Heliconia, located just off the second forest trail about 350 meters south of the road and not far from a dip in the terrain, presumably for a small stream; the songs after playback were similar to those heard before but they were given more frequently and I heard the introductory ÒchickÓ note only after playback; partly cloudy, calm, 80¡ F; don't copy brief part after this cut.
