NOTES: This bird was well seen before I recorded it and clearly worn and possibly in molt; this was recorded after quite a bit of playback of itself by Mario Cohn-Haft; although the bird was often in the open, it sang only infrequently; when recorded, it was 20 meters up overhead along road on one side of which was relatively good forest and on the other a cleared field; although generally high up in the taller trees, in response to playback it made a rapid and aggressive approach down nearly to eye-level with its crest raised and flicking its wings; there may have been two birds present; this bird was initially with a mixed-species flock, but later on its own after the flock moved off; partly cloudy, calm, 87¡ F. Response to playback: Approach. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Rainforest, Evergreen Forest, Edge.
