Comments

...male (less than half a meter) perched on the same shrub. Female vocalization are rare just in flight during the chasing. Apparently females vocalizations are produced to indicate its position to the male while foraging within the territory and for calling young birds. Males intense and very frequent vocalizations, are mainly for territory delimitation from high perches.
