This is a very trusting Antshrike that is quite happy with being close to humans, well so long as you keep a respectful distance, usually seen in pairs, they will happily chatter and chuckle away as they feed, the constant calling keeping the pair aware of where each other is, it is normal for the male to lead, the female bird coming along not too far behind her mate, both share nest duties and bringing up the young.
