Media notes

A male calling insistently near an adult brown morph Glaucidium brasilianum. In the beginning there is an adult male Chlorostilbon lucidus, chittering while examining the owl. The male woodpecker calls most of the time, then the female shows up and they make different vocalizations toward each other, including a soft chatter. The last very loud sounds are aggressive, and are produced when the male woodpecker chased the owl.
