NOTES: IDENTIFICATION WAS MADE USING A 30X SCOPE. DESCRIPTION AND SONG SEEM TO SUGGEST THIS SPECIES, BUT I AM NEVER CERTAIN OF SOME OF THESE TROPICAL FLYCATCHERS UNLESS I CAN EXAMINE THEM CLOSELY. (IN OCT 1974 I NETTED ONE OF THESE BIRDS. ITCALLED BOTH IN MY HAND AND IN MY PHOTOGRAPHICCAGE. IDENTIFICATION SEEMS CERTAIN. CULTIVATED FIELDS AND REMNANTS OFPINE-OAK WOODLAND.) 1 ADULT(S); MALE? BNA: Calls "quip-quip". mf [Yes, these are the "quip, quip" Calls of BNA. This should be C. p. minor based on range. Quality changed from 1-2 to 2-1, 1-2 (a bit of quiet handling noise in first half of recording) - CAM - 22 December 2004]. Habitat: Forest.
