Laughing Falcon (Herpetotheres cachinnans)

Its local name is “Guaco”, which is an onomatopeic translation of its song. It will call from the topmost branch of a tall tree, usually close to sunrise (5:00 to 6:00 am). I got the following three pictures at Fincas Bambuzal, Río Frío on April 14th, 2017. I used the bird’s song to pinpoint its location; it is difficult since the bird goes silent for a few minutes before resuming its call, and can move to a different place during those silent periods.



I am watching you, don’t come to close!
