Media notes

The flycatcher is closest to the mic and loudest around 1:15-1:50 and 3:25-3:50. Elegant Trogon is also loud on this recording. Distinct buzzing sound beginning around 2:05 may be wing whir from Black-chinned Hummingbird.

Observation details

***Continuing rarity, first found over the weekend. Very active and vocal throughout my visit. Alternating between foraging and gathering material to bring to the nest site. The nest, placed in a large oak in the middle of the campsite, has progressed significantly over the last couple days. It is now developed enough that the bird is beginning to body-mold the shape of the cup as she incorporates material into the walls. The bird remained near the nest site while I was there, keeping within about a 40m radius.
