NOTES: Three or four birds, a female of which was seen giving this call, were 8-10 meters away and <2 meters up in relatively dense undergrowth at the edge of the forest at the small clearing near the stream at the base of the hill; probably the same group of birds previously highlighted in cut #2001-12-03; this call seemed to be given more following my ÒspishingÓ and whistled imitations; some of the birds were also heard singing.
