NOTES: A new bird recorded just in from the road before the second dip about 50 meters in on a trail that extended along a property line through relatively good terra firme forest on the north side of the road; unseen bird was 25-35 meters away and 20-25 meters up in dense vines and tangles in the canopies of some of the taller trees right over the trail and seemingly in constant motion, though never moving very far; the bird was singing when I arrived but probably not for very long (the first Xiphorhynchus song I heard was at 5:27 by the bird I had been recording); the bird gave another song from the same area at 5:44:44, just after recorder turned off following first announcement; additional songs after recorder turned off the second time at 5:46:50, 5:50:10, 5:54:44, and another a few seconds later, then a few long calls off towards the highway but no more songs as of 6:10; broken high overcast, calm, 79¡ 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.
