NOTES: This cut was recorded about 3 1/2 km. out road; one or possibly two birds were unseen; the songs seemed a little bit odd at first, possibly as a result of some sort of interaction, but still natural; bird(s) was in mid-levels of trees that did not seem overly large; no response to playback apart from a few chips from the Attila; by contrast, the Xiphorhynchus crossed back-and-forth across the road and sang after playback (at times trailing the song out a bit); scattered, high clouds; calm; 82-83¡ F.
