This is a great bird and its distinctive call can be heard in many parts of the park. I've been close to seeing it at Biyamiti on a few occasions. However without exaggerating I would say I have followed up and tried to view this bird on more than 30 occasions from hearing its call and it still eludes me 7 years on...
