A very distinct call match. Very flighty. Hard to photograph. Photos show yellow legs, streaked flank, and pale supercillium, but I was unable to get a satisfying shot of that iconic rufous cap. Followed this bird for a while but it never let me get close. It’s call was clearly different from pectoral. Brighter tone, two repeating notes as opposed to pectoral churring. After consulting with some others I’ve decided to enter this as a SPTS, but I welcome feedback and correction. Photos to come.
