Media notes

NOTES: A pair of adults present on far side of river, some 40m across. These birds were both swimming and perching on low overhanging branches. Birds were somewhat responsive to playback, at least giving slightly louder vocalizations in the second cut (first is natural). I believe the female gave the low-level calls that can be heard in the beginning of this cut, and the male gave the louder cackling outbursts. Habitat: Forest, Evergreen Forest, Deciduous Forest, River.
