NOTES: The first bird was well seen before I recorded it and intermittently while I recorded it; it used three different perches during the course of this recording before it eventually flew off; this bird was initially 40 meters away, then 30 meters away, and at the end 25-30 meters away, and in all cases about 25 meters up and often amid vegetation in the canopies of the larger trees at the edge of terra firme forest along the main road about 300 meters in from edge of forest just before the second dip in the road [03¡ 47' 34" S, 60¡ 17' 54" W]; during the course of the recording a second bird began singing, apparently as a duet with the first bird (there were at least two birds and maybe three in the immediate vicinity); the birds were bowing up and down as is typical for these birds when they sing; fully overcast, rain from about 6:15 to 7:15 and a few drips continuing to this time, calm, 83¡ F.
ML: 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.
