NOTES: 64 songs and short calls of BIRD #3 recorded in two parts at dawn (6:33:52, 6:55:42); previous tape ended at 6:28:02 am, with this cut beginning at 6:30:21 am; a long call seemed to be from a second bird; the calling bird was high up, whereas the singing bird was moving about constantly, but remaining lower in the undergrowth (between one and five meters off the ground); the singing bird was 15 meters away, and within five meters of the ground; begins again after a break at 6:41:55 am, with the bird now 45 meters away and in same tree where he began singing this morning (40-45 meters up overhead in a huge emergent with a dbh of 1 1/2 meters and apparently nearly 50 meters in height); this cut was recorded following (or possibly still during) an interaction between two birds that may have been rival males; recorded off the west side of Estrada do Gave¿ on an unmarked logging road, 2.1 km. N Estrada do Caing¿ (sustainable forestry plot Ð Bloco A [19¡ 04' 32" S, 39¡ 54Õ 17" W]); partly cloudy, calm, 73 ¡F, drizzle at end of cut, despite largely clear skies (the sun was up quite some time by the end of this cut); cut includes very good short calls (quality 1-2) that I believe were from the singing bird.
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.
