Costa Rican Bird Sounds

The following sound clips are .wav files and therefore you will need an appropriate sound playing program and speakers in order to hear them. In the interest of keeping file loading times from being overly long for those with relatively slow connection speeds, the file sizes are typically no larger than 300Kb. However, if you are interested in hearing longer sound clips of any of these species, please contact Richard Garrigues.

* - indicates that the bird is heard in the background of a recording of a different species.

(alt) - indicates an alternate vocalization of the same species.
