NOTES: An unseen bird that was probably 60-70 meters away and very high in the top of a tall tree alongside the right fork of the second spur (ramal) road in the INCRA project; this was recorded after I whistled to the bird, which seemed to have some effect, but later playback did not appear to have much effect on the becard, but the toucan did fly across the road to check me out; I think this represents documentation for the first record of this species east of the Rio Madeira on the south bank of the Amazon; full and very dense overcast with fog in the treetops, calm, 80¡ F. Response to playback: No response. Response to playback: Normal song. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Rainforest, Evergreen Forest.
