Help with bird ID

Hi everyone,

I work as a sound editor for film and tv. Today I came across with this recording of a bird. I like the sound, but the recording is terrible. So I need to identificate the bird in order to search for new better sounds of it. Could you help me with this? The sound is attached below. Thank you in advance

Welcome to BirdForum. Can you say anything more about the recording and whether any information was provided with it e.g. the approximate location?

Thank you Andrew!

That's a sound that came from the picture editor. The film in which it is used takes place in Brazil, but I can't confirm that the bird recording is from there as well.

Sounds like an Eastern Whip-poor-will.

Yes, I think you're right.

It’s just the dialect - Surely you can say ‘Chiffchaff’ with a Spanish accent

The xeno-canto.org site might be a good place to search for better recordings of Eastern Whip-poor-will (and many other bird sounds).

https://www.xeno-canto.org/species/A...omus-vociferus

Has over 80 foreground recordings of the species of varying length and quality. Details of the people who made the recordings are shown so you could contact the owners should you need too for accreditation etc.

It is a cool sounding bird, but if you are doing sound for a film set in Brazil you might want to choose something else; Eastern Whip-poor-will does not occur there.

Thank you all for answering. I was kind of disappointed to know this isn't a native specie in Brazil. I'll try to offer another option to the film director that would be more accurate. Maybe a Piha which isn't much very far away in range..

Nonetheless thank you.

There are lots of amazing bird sounds from Brazil, including many species of nightjar that are related to the Whip-poor-will. If you want a night bird, some of the owls make great sounds. Spectacled or Tawny-browed Owls are particularly good.

Thank you for the suggestions, Andrew. If I have the occasion, I'll also try a common potoo in the film. I think it qualifies as a nightjar and it sounds quite amazing as well.

Best,
Rodrigo
