NOTES: HHb filters in cut position; attenuators off on both recorder and microphone;
Same male as 98RDAT17-08 & 09 with presumed mate now relatively conspicuous in background; after minimal additional playback of itself. Playback response was approach and a similar song, though possibly with a shorter intersong interval (bird gave two calls when it initially came in). Male was well seen, initially three meters up, later only two. Bird was off grid 30-40 meters S of intersection of trails K and 7S (350 meters). When this cut was recorded bird was at edge of clearing perched in one spot wagging its tail back-and-forth. Sun was in trees by this time.
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.
