This was taped while paddling around on the ox-bow lake, Cocha Salvador.
I observed this bird during the entire taping. There are various sounds, and they all came from the same bird. It is not on the Parker or Coffey tapes. Coffey wrote me that at Yarinacocha, Peru, calls of adults and immatures differ. Bird ws taped about .25mile up the Manu River from the Cocha Salvador campsite. Members of the party who had been here before gave me the name of the bird.
