Media notes

NOTES: Recorded simultaneously by Greg Budney (see LNS 139402). Our location on the temple was at the same height as the canopy of the forest, but there were also a few small shrubs and flowering plants growing along the earthen slope of the temple, just below our vantage point. This bird was foraging in these flowers, either at our eye-level or slightly below. Same subject(s) as LNS 139402.
