To -3db,
These big, black birds flew about the beach camp near Cocha Salvador Lake, landing on clothesline posts. People in the party who had been here before identified them. identical with painting in Geographic manual. However, Ben Coffey believes it to be Roadside Hawk, probably because my copy tape was reduced from +3db to a much lower figure. This bird, which I watched while taping, did not have the large, yellow claws of Roadside Hawk, or its thinner, yellowish beak.
LNS: Subject changed from Crotophaga ani to Daptrius ater based on the recommendation of Daniel Lane and comparison with LNS 89019. -Matt Medler, 19 Nov 2012.
