A bird, looking like an adult (based on eye color and eyebrow) but perhaps a yearling, making this harsh call while perched on a branch 40cm above the ground, quivering the wings shallowly while spreading them halfway. An adult hits a grub against a tree (the tapping noise heard in the recording) and then feeds the calling bird (when it increases the calling rate). Another bird makes a similar harsh call in the distance and was part of the same group.
