a) natural vocalizations. Note that in this region are found only the cruentatus-type birds. Quality: 1-2. Level: +5.
Two birds responded to playback; one was collected (= female #6862); sex of other could not be seen. After collecting this bird the other could not be interested by playback.
b) Recordings made later. Quality: 1-2. Level: +12.
c) 5:35 PM. Birdds sang naturally (see Cut 12b of Crypturellus noctivagus). Then I played back that recorded "song" and the following recordings resulted.
Note: Near end of Cut 8 of Ara severa is a drum that is probably of the present species.
