NOTES: Although it took some time, I did eventually see this bird and it was clearly this species (and described briefly on tape); when recorded, the bird was 20 meters away and 12-15 meters up in the mid-levels in 30 meter-tall trees of good forest with the understory and mid-levels relatively open and the canopy closed above a shallow ravine along the road well up on the hillside; in response to playback of songs, the bird typically went quiet and approached, sometimes darting about but often sitting motionless; it also approached in response to playback of the calls but it did not take as long to begin calling; partly cloudy, intermittent, 81-82¡ F; a two-part cut with an internal announcement.
