Agitated calls of 2 M. momota. Low in tangled growth of tree fall gap, calling persistantly and jumping back and forth between perches 1-2m off the ground. At perch, while calling, would bob and wag tail side to side. Afterwards a Leucopternis schistaceus flew over area and perched for 2 mins over the tree fall gap, then flew away. The agitated calls of the motmots may have been in response to its presence.
