NOTES: This bird began singing without giving a long call at 5:46, after which I missed about eight to ten songs; recorded about 50 meters short of spur road off to the right; I began on the spur road but then moved back to the main road; initially about 75 meters away and blocked, later 40 meters away, and 25-30 meters up in a large but relatively open tree right along the road; though I was not all that far from the bird, it was not a Òstraight shotÓ and there were many insects; a second bird appeared to fly into tree mid-way through recording, after which the singing bird began giving different vocalizations; recorder off briefly at 5:52:38 and again at 6:06:10; back on again at 6:54 after missing one song (bird was singing only infrequently); I missed two songs after I turned the recorder off at 6:09:20 and managed to get a long call during the announcement just after this; bird began singing again at 6:13:1`6, after which I missed three songs getting back onto it with it in the same tree (time announcement at 6:14:14); bird moved at 6:15:18; a few high thin clouds, calm, 78¡ F.
ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Xiphorhynchus guttatus guttatoides to Xiphorhynchus guttatus guttatoides/dorbignyanus to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
