Hi I am from Belgium and I am hearing thuis
Bird sound for already 4 days. The sound is like a
Serie of 5 different sounds, each time in the same order.
I think it is probably not a Belgian Bird.
Can anybody help me? I am so curieus to know what of is.
Here is a link of a video where you can hear this
Serie of sounds repeated 2 times. I put on my Facebook because I couldn't upload the video here.

Welcome to Birdforum!
I think you’re right, it doesn’t sound like any European species to me, no doubt some of our world traveller members will recognise it!

I can't pinpoint what it is, but I heard this sound before. It is some reasonably common exotic bird from an aviary. I am certain some world birder will know it immediately.

BTW, few years ago I visited some known birding place about that time and heard strange screams coming from the forest. What it is? Are they Grey Herons starting a colony? Not, this must be a macaw! I went there, and surely, behind a patch of woods somebody had a garden aviary and a pair of Blue-and-Gold Macaws together with lots of waterfowl.

This is a playback of whatever species to chase away domestic pigeons. I've heard the very same sound last summer and asked someone about it.

Sounds similar to a Northern Mockingbird. The repeating in 3's fits well, though they usually have a longer repertoire they will cycle through before repeating.

It does sound like it is a recording I agree that's a good suggestion.

Thanks everyone for your answers! I have been looking online and there are indeed several audio devices that play sounds that are suite similar to this call. It is a pity that I can 't seem to find the exact same sounds (listened to all the video's I could find). It is a serieous difference if someone is keeping a tropical bird on a terras or is continously playing these sounds from early morning till evening...
