When we heard this song we were not sure whether it was a Spotted Barbtail or Crowned Chat-Tyrant. We saw the Crowned Chat-Tyrant a few minutes before we heard this so we may assume that it is the Crowned Chat-Tyrant but it is not 100% sure. The spotted Barbtail is less likely because of the altitude. According to Peter Boesman it was a Rufous-headed Pygmy Tyrant.
