NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 6. Bulk reel: 230; Extra cut(s) on bulk reel: 231?; Extra cut length: 2:42.
Time: 9:25 AM to 9:45 AM. Approximately four birds present (perhaps more but only four sure).
The behavior appeared to be more of courtship (?) type rather than of conflict. The birds kept moving actively around in a large cecropia. Occasionally one would fly out in a circle, or to another cecropia but then returned. Can hear frequently a rattling sound these birds make. Quality: 1. Level: +3. LN. 203 tape.
