NOTES: 105 songs of BIRD #2 at dawn; although I apparently missed four songs changing tape after the previous cut (#99-97-04) ended at 6:01 am, I did not note when this cut began; one bird was singing, while the other was giving the long and short calls (at least initially); the singing bird gave a rather odd call during this cut; the unseen bird was 25-30 meters away and 25 meters up in large tree (nearly 1 meter dbh); I first heard the singing bird at 5:43 am; recorded 200-300 meters short of Estrada do Gave¿, along road from it to the house at the Rio Barra Seca [19¡ 04Õ 21" S, 39¡, 53Õ 47" W], in good, terra firme forest with tall trees and relatively open understory at the northern end of the reserve; all of the short calls were apparently given by the second bird; the songs of the first bird immediately following the long calls of the second bird are noticeably different; when second bird was calling consistently, the singing bird stopped altogether; though moving about a bit, these birds generally did not move too far; they used several tree-fall gaps, where they tended to sing from large trees at the edge of the gaps; after recorder was turned off, I heard long-calls at 6:37:41 and 6:37:59, a song at 6:45:24, and another long-call at 6:48:19 am; another song given at 6:50:06 am, was at a distance of about 100 or more meters, with the bird on the south side of the road and moving off; the last time announcement was at 6:53 am; dense overcast, light rain during two parts of this cut, calm, 78¡ F; the entire reel represents an unbroken cut; no recording done on 29 November due to rain.
ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Xiphorhynchus guttatus guttatus to Xiphorhynchus guttatus [guttatus Group] to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
