Although the tree that this bird was in was not all that dense, I never did see this bird at all, even though it seemed to be moving around quite a bit. A few songs, but mostly calls, by an unseen bird that was moving about in the canopy of the tree overhead approximately 20-25 meters away and almost directly overhead in a tree at the edge of terra firme forest along the spur road about 1 1/2 km. beyond the logging camp. this was probably the same individual that I recorded the previous day in cut #BOL017, and in the same trees where we saw this species the previous day. Weather conditions were the same [overcast, calm, 78° F]. Equipment Notes: Sennheiser powered using phantom power and with filter in flat position and attenuator off for all recordings. Nagra input set at 2 mV / Pa and low-pass filter in flat position unless noted otherwise.
