    Equipment Note

NOTES: Initially natural calls by the female of a pair, which was 3-4 meters away and 1 meter up (with the male in the background, 15-20 meters away); after limited playback, I first highlighted the male, which at the time was 8 meters away and 1-3 meters up in dense vegetation along the stream, but then turned around to get the female, which was 5-6 meters away and about 1 meter up in the ferns on the slope; I saw the male very well before I recorded this and the female moderately well while I was recording; both birds were in very dense undergrowth, much of it 2-3 meter-tall ferns, growing at the edges of a wide spot in the road and along the stream right where it crossed the road at the sharp bend at the base of the hill; in response to playback, both birds approached and moved all around me giving the same calls, but they never sang; I had previously heard these birds calling in this same area and the following day I obtained tape of the male singing (cut #2001-18-10); almost completely overcast, calm, 79¡ F.

ML: Subject changed from recordist's original identification of Cercomacra laeta sabinoi to Cercomacra laeta to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
