NOTES: (Breed. Status: Breeding. Sound Del. Rate: Constant. Gen. Climate: Humid. Cov. Density: Open.) BNA: Begging calls of nestlings, also known as "Chirp Calls", "churring calls" and "Kyik" Calls (depending on the nestlings' ages). Drumming and some tapping can also be heard as well as possibly the Call Note of the adults, also termed "Kyik", "chet", "chuck", or "clicking" CZ 24/02/2004. [For this most part, this recording contains incessant Chirp Calls by nestlings, but at 12:37, 16:41, and again at 21:31 these Chirp Calls briefly become Loud Chirp Calls (the first and last examples better than the middle one), apparently because the adult arrived to feed the young. In various parts of the recording are series of the "Kyik" Call Notes of the parent(s). These calls are most apparent in the beginning of the recording (0:04-2:22), but there are also several at the end (21:25, 21:27, 21:30, 21:54). CAM - 26 April 2005]. Other Behaviors: Establish Parent Young Contact, Social Context: Family. Habitat: Forest, Deciduous Forest.
