CHACHALACA CACOPHONACA: This recording features several pairs of Plain Chachalaca sounding off at dawn in the riverine forest along the Rio Grande at Salineno, Texas. 7:45am, 3 March, 2017. Listen also for the loud calls of a Greater Kiskadee, the resonant coos of White-tipped Doves, and the harsh rattle of a Ringed Kingfisher.
THE RAUCOUS CALLS of Chachalaca are one of the most memorable sounds of the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Recorded using an M/S microphone setup for clear separation of the duetting pairs.
