Costa Rica - Chirripó National Park. Magical bird call. (1 Viewer)

Hello, I visited Costa Rica a few years ago and I want to share some footage I took while climbing Chirripo. I've attached a video with the magical sounds of what we think is a Bell Bird. However, the bird wasn't making the distinctive "Bonk" sound. Only the higher squeaky sounds. Can anyone identify the bird from it's call? View attachment Costa Rica Bird_01.mp4
Thanks so much! This is definitely the one.
So nice to actually see what it looks like, never did manage to spot it in the trees.
