NOTES: There appeared to be a mixed-species flock but the only bird that I actually saw was a male of this species, and the similarity of this song to that of Tachyphonus surinamus suggests to me that this may be the song of this species; the bird I saw was about 75 m away and 20 m up along riparian corridor through terra firme forest along back loop of Trilha das Rochas behind the Saleiro [09¡ 36Õ 05.4Ó S, 55¡ 56Õ 11.8Ó W, 245 m] [= RCR092-093; GPS coordinates in file #RCR100]. Other Behaviors: Establish Flock Contact, Advertise, Social Context: Mixed. Habitat: Rainforest, Evergreen Forest, Riparian.
