NOTES: Recorded in same spot as cut #97RDAT24-23 along Avenida Perimetral Oeste abut 1 km. south of hotel on opposite side of road in a really scrubby area with scattered small trees. Unseen bird was 20 m away and apparently low in relatively dense undergrowth. Clouds beginning to break up, but weather otherwise the same [mostly overcast, calm, mid 70s]. Identified from tape by Kevin J. Zimmer. Copied HPF@200 Hz.
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.
