NOTES: Song of same male as cut #97RDAT16-17 after playback of itself. Bird was initially about 6 m away but later 12-15 m and about 4 m above level of water. In response to playback bird approached and perched crosswise in open understory near river about 1 m up on vertical stems but generally flew off before I could record it; song was the same. Bird was in understory along river at beginning of trail. A male with a narrow black strip through throat.
