Figure 1. The Barred Forest-Falcon can frequently be heard in Mãe-da-lua reserve, normally at dawn, but sometimes also during the day.
The calls presented here are from an individual which vocalized during the day, at first spontaneously and then in response to playback (sample: after playback). I observed and recorded this bird during at least 10 minutes.To top of page
