Wing-barred Seedeater - Sporophila americana Rolf A. de By 2019-08-08 fields S of Peperpot plantation, Meerzorg, Commewijne, Commewijne (Suriname) (10 m) life stage uncertain, male, song -

Recording overmodulated and for this reason trimmed down in volume somewhat. This is a rare bird in XC collection, and so ID verified again. Description mentions a black-and-white seedeater seen from nearby but mostly (only) head on. White neck collar, white throat and black breast band all point at WBS, however, mention of only a white spot in the wing makes me question whether the bird was a pure WBS, or perhaps a not fully mature male. Perhaps I just did not see the wing well enough, notes do not help on this aspect.
