The Montezuma Oropendola

The first time I ever heard this bird was when i was in Belize. I was walking through the jungle and I heard these amazing sounds coming from in front of me. The only way i could describe the sound was to liken it to a sound effect when a clown walks into a circus…. Springs and boings!

The oropendola uses its Syrinx to the full with this vocalization.

Enjoy……….
