Comments

This flock of 20 or more birds seemed to be foraging and loafing in the treetops. Occasionally 2-3 would wheel upwards then return, screaming loudly. The sudden appearance of a Collared Aracari sent them all off screaming. Habitat: Scrub-covered hill, cane fields with tall trees along a river. Other Behaviors: Establish Flock Contact. Habitat: River, Scrub.
