NOTES: Song, first natural, then after playback, recorded in three parts at 7:30, 7:42 (2); 7:59 (1-2). Recorded in somewhat scrubby portion of forest along loop trail on north side of logging road, ca. 1 km. W of intersection with highway; recorded at large, tree-fall gap at marker #58 on forest trail; initially 50 meters away, then 30 meters; once seen perched briefly when I believe that I saw orange facial skin (identified at the time as M. gilvicollis); in response to tape playback, the bird went quiet and passed overhead several times; when seen, bird was 18 meters up (upper mid-levels), though it seemed to be lower when initially recorded; second bird calling in the distance; mostly clear, hazy, 76¡ F; identified from tape as M. ruficollis by Andrew Whittaker.
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.
