    Equipment Note

Habitat: wet, tropical, evergreen forest. Position in Habitat: medium. Recordist Note: More than 2 adults, one of which might be a female. The behavioral context of the recording was confusing. A male rifle bird (possibly 2?) gave the whistles and probably howling. A female was also present. I felt at the time that one or the other produced the continuous scolding. I have a similar recording for Lophorina superba.
