NOTES: Recorded amid mixed-species flock near marker #37. Bird was seen after approach, possibly in response to my whistling. when recorded, bird was 8-15 m up in mid-levels, and 20-25 m away. Chattering and some calls may also have been from this bird. Basically clear, calm, upper 70s.
ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Ramphastos tucanus cuvieri to Ramphastos tucanus to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
