NOTES: Songs by a bird that was first heard calling, then singing, from very dense growth at the edge of tall terra firme forest along the road just beyond the second dip; the singing bird was about 6-8 meters away and 1-2 meters up when recorded; subsequent playback resulted in the bird approaching and giving calls; it was seen and clearly a male of this species, but a second bird was also heard calling; partly cloudy, mild breeze from the east, and in the upper 80s to low 90s.
