NOTES: Background: PHYLLASTREPHUS STREPITANS (CHATTERING); Background: LANIARIUS FERRUGINEUS (BELL-LIKE NOTES); Cover density: THICK; Weather: WIND; HEARD THIS CURIOUS SONG WHILE RECORDING LANIARIUS QUADRICOLOR AND PLAYED IT BACK FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES. REACTION TO PLAYBACK WAS IMMEDIATE AND THIS BIRD APPEARED. SHE IMMEDIATELY CAME CLOSE TO ME AND STARTED UP AGAIN. SHE WOULD REMAIN FOR A PERIOD IN ONE PLACE - BUT NOT STILL MOVING WITH QUICK LITTLE MOVEMENTS OF HER BODY WHICH WERE NOT NECESSARILY MADE BY HER WINGS OR TAIL. WHEN I RETURNED THE NEXT DAY TO THESAME SPOT SHE IMMEDIATELY APPEARED AGAIN COMING FROM SOME DISTANCE. EARLY MORNING. HARSH MONOTONOUS 'ZE-ZE-SZEE-SZEE..'. TROPICAL COAST. THICKETS AND IN MOST PARTS, DENSE BRUSH. 1 ADULT(S); FEMALE(S)
