NOTES: Several cuts of song recorded at10:32 (natural), 10:39, and 10:42 (the last two after playback); bird was initially 30 meters away, later 10-15 meters away and on or near ground in dense forest undergrowth near wet (swampy) spot; minimal response to playback (possibly weak approach, song unchanged); seen as large antpitta by me, better by Mario Cohn-Haft; mostly clear, trace breeze, mid-80s.
