Mottled Spinetail - Telacanthura ussheri Louis A. Hansen 2003-01-24 Ukami Forest, Udzungwa Mts, Iringa Region, Iringa (pre-2012) (Tanzania) (1050 m) call -

Was sitting on a huge rock (lowland tropical evergreen to semi evergreen forest) overlooking a shallow gorge watching (and recording) a feeding party - when suddenly a large size spinetail thunders through and vanish deeper into the forested gorge - possible to a nesting tree. Took some time to set the ID as the views were at best very brief. So calls are flight calls. Time of the day is early morning

bird-seen:no

playback-used:no
