- HHB PORTADAT PDR 1000
- Sennheiser ME 64
- Roche Parabola 60cm/14.5cm (23.6in/5.7in)
NOTES: Recorded on loop trail behind hotel near the split. Unseen bird was 50-60 m away in canopy. I later used playback to bring these birds (apparently a pair) in to obtain good views. In response to playback, the two birds flew back and forth overhead and gave somewhat slower and more Hylexetastes-like songs.
ML: Background subject changed from recordist's original identification of Xiphorhynchus guttatus eytoni to Xiphorhynchus guttatus [eytoni Group] to conform to eBird Taxonomy (v. 1.55). -Jay McGowan/Matt Medler, July 2015.
