I heard the vocalizations of the male and female long before I was able to see them. I was on the river that runs through Fazenda San Fransico and was slowly moving towards the sounds in the forest.

This is the male.

They were in the dense and for me dark forest, and was only able to see them intermittently between tree trunks and vegetation.

They seemed agitated, as if they had chicks that no longer responded to their calls, or if a predator was nearby. Finally they decided to cross the river and move away from it.
