NOTES: Unclear whether song or call of two birds recorded in dense growth along road near puddle just in from river bank. Recorded in two parts, the first ending at 7:06 and the second at 7:08. Initially 15-20 m away, but later possibly as near as 10 m in relatively low second-growth. Seen brefily as it flew across gap between two parts of this recording, and well seen afterward after approach in response to playback of itself. Playback response was silent approach but eventually giving one call and one "song". Conditions same, but more blue sky, 75¡ F. When seen, burd was 2 1/2-3 m up. Two birds calling, at least at first. Note that there is no cut #97RDAT20-29.
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.
