This male Tanager was most likely looking for a female companion. A group of us stumbled on him when looking for owls. We know what he was doing as he was attracted by a recording of the tanager song. Not my preferred way of attracting a bird, but the group seemed comfortable using it for a brief period. The bird flitted around trying to find the source of the sound, but once the sound was turned off it flew up into the canopy (we could hear it but not see it). It was an interesting experience and far too short-lived. You can see how the light and background changed as the bird moved about.
