NOTES: Bird was unseen but probably 20 m away at first, later 8-10 m away, and on or near the ground in good, terra firme forest just in from bend in road at bottom of hill (at the same spot where I recorded file #CAR05-49); this recording was made after playback of the birdÕs own songs by Luciano N. Naka, the response to which were highly agitated songs given at a rapid pace; a second bird singing nearby probably contributed to the birdÕs agitated state; high clouds, calm, upper 60s to low 70s [= CAR087-088, CAR092].
ML: Subject changed from Sclerurus rufigularis to S. mexicanus macconnelli based on inclusion on Alta Floresta guide and confirmation by Alex Lees. -Jay McGowan 3Nov2015.
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.
