Media notes

NOTES: (Altitude: 0-65 m. No. of Animals/Sex: Male(s)?) Very restless (as the field annotation indicated)--flying between and over trees sometimes perched when calling sometimes flying--the "Butterflies" indicates that it has a "display flight" with fluttering wings as it moves--however it did not always "flutter." The helmet-shrikes [sic] were nesting and the cuckoo parasitizes them so this likely was related to courtship and breeding.
