Both these birds restricta type.
Along the Zulia-Lara highway (= Rt. 5), in the general vicinity of Campo Lara, Zulia (between the intersections for Lagunillas & Bachaquaro), I saw three males, all of them singing and reacting territorially: two were restricta type, one was ~ restricta type but had two black spots in center of upper chest. All had a little black at sides of chest (is this typical of restricta?).
