NOTES: This bird was 25 meters away and about 10 meters up in a 12 meter-tall, dead tree over a slope with scrubby forest just below the radio tower off the Camino de los Espa¿oles [10¡ 32.867' N, 66¡ 56.169' W]; the bird opened its bill when it sang; I later saw this bird relatively well and noted that the chin was green and there was no purple on the breast, suggesting this species over Colibri coruscans; a little over a 1/2 moon 70¡ up in western sky; high thin clouds, calm, 56¡ F; this is the same bird highlighted in cut #2001-01-09. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Cloudforest, Evergreen Forest, Second-growth, Scrub.
