Bird not seen but from voice the identification seems reasonably certain. They seemed to be relatively common in the area; three heard simultaneously.
First one bird is heard in some dawn song. Then at least two birds heard in regular and dawn song.
OJO! Note that one of these birds gives the regular song in the usual way with three to four notes. But later, it or another gives these notes 11 times and with an inflection that makes it seem almost like Herpetothera cachinnans. Then it gives it six times and seven times.
In background of first part is Glaucidium brasilianum. In background of rest, Momotus momota, Tangara [Euphonia] tristata, Campylorhynchus griseus.
