Once heard, you will never forget this extraordinary voice! I was always thinking of a dropping faucet...

Also I reviewed my album and found more photos. Unfortunately they are slightly blurry, but I agree with your suggestion!

Perhaps it was juvenile because it was a relatively small bird. I agree that your suggestion makes most sense. I recall our guide saying it had a distinctive call and the Montezuma Oropendola sounds like what she described. Thanks for the id! http://sounds.bl.uk/Environment/Listen-t...

Are you sure you saw this as a "small" bird? Or was is a juvenile? It is quite large. The tail is obviously yellow. There is only one candidate for such kind of bird: Psaroclius montezuma.
