NOTES: First part recorded at 6:31, second part at 6:43. Unseen bird was 40 meters up and 45 meters away, high up in tall tree over the road in the same place I had earlier recorded the woodcreeper (along the entrance road, ca. 150 meters from the base clearing); mostly clear (though hazy and possibly smoky), calm, mid 70s; good, terra firme forest with tall canopy; at the end of this cut, the bird was about 35 meters directly overhead.
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.
