NOTES: This bird was unseen initially, when recorded about 25-30 meters away and 18 meters up, relatively high in a medium-sized tree in relatively good forest; whereas my whistled imitation seemed to get it to call more frequently, it did not approach; but later playback resulted in the bird flying in right up overhead about 20 meters up in a relatively large tree over the road; the same bird was unseen but 30 meters away and high up in the latter parts recorded after playback; there may have been two or three birds present but the bird highlighted here was a male that I saw clearly; mostly cloudy, humid, calm, 85¡ F. Response to playback: Approach. Response to playback: Normal song. Other Behaviors: Bill Drumming, Advertise. Habitat: Rainforest, Evergreen Forest.
