Observation details

Two birds called in reply to playback of grunt calls. I recorded some of their calls. I also saw the head and breast of one of the skulking birds. The beast and neck were a rich rufous brown. The face was mostly gray with a dark eye line. The lower mandible was orange from the base to just short of the center The upper bill and distal portion of lower bill were blackish gray, but the bill was covered with mud near the tip. The bird probed the mud briefly before sliding back jnto the cover of the reedy vegetation along the shoreline next to the road.
