NOTES: HHb filters in cut position; attenuators off on both recorder and microphone; apparently several birds, about one meter up in undergrowth of terra firme forest; intersections of trails N and 1S (50 meters); this species was seen just before I made this recording, and in response to playback a male came in and perched about two meters up on a vertical stem; additional calls, chips, and songs were heard in response to playback; the Xiphorhynchus also approached and called in response to playback of its call.
ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Xiphorhynchus guttatus eytoni to Xiphorhynchus guttatus [eytoni Group] to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
