NOTES: I saw this bird only as a small hummingbird moving about when I made this recording, but I saw it well soon thereafter; although the bird moved about quite a bit, it always returned to the same perch, a U-shaped branch that was initially 10 meters away, later about 6 meters away (for best part of recording after internal announcement), and 3 meters up; it was one of at least two or three of these birds singing in the immediate vicinity; the bird was moving about almost constantly and the airplane noise was constant; still a bit dark; full overcast (rain during the night), calm, mid-70s; tape left to run to the end following second announcement. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Park/Campus/Cemetery, Rainforest, Evergreen Forest.
