NOTES: Neotropical Institute Cut # 5. Brazil; Bulk reel: 194a) Natural song. Quality: 2. Level: +3. 3.75 ips.b) This is probably after playback, although the field notes don't indicate it. Quality: 1-2. Level: +3. 3.75 & 7.5 ips.c) Shortly after effective playback. Quality: 1-2, 1. Level: +3. 7.5 ips.The individual figures of the phrase are more staccato (and shorter) than those of P. leucoptera. The identification should be confirmed. [Later note:] Ident. confirmed by Ed Willis (letter 25 Sept 1975).Field note re: Cut 5) "From what I could see, bird is all black with prominent white patch, apparently on back; seems too small to be Pyriglena or Myrmeciza immaculata and doesn't move tail that way. Sound stimulation was (other): possible playback of song.
