Records. Table 3.

Common Pauraque individuals were identified by size (mean Wc = 15.3 cm ± 1.8), shape, and color pattern ( Fig. 14). They had very long tails with white bands on the rectrices and across the wings, well-defined ear patches, and lacked a nuchal collar. Both specimens presented female patterning, with a brood patch on the abdomen in the larger specimen.
