As aves ficavam em círculo parecendo que estavam disputando poder, um parecia ser o que desafiava e o outro sempre aparecia com uns guarda costas para defendê-lo. Interação interessante.

The birds were in a circle looking as though they were vying for power, one seemed to be the one who challenged and the other always appeared with bodyguards to defend it. Interesting interaction.

Smooth-billed Ani - Crotophaga ani leanne grieves 2012-10-01 Cabo Rojo, Llanos Costa, Cabo Rojo, Cabo Rojo (Puerto Rico) (10 m) aggressive, call -

Hoots are primarily associated with chases. Chasing is an aggressive behaviour that occurs when a group or a lone bird enters another group’s territory. Chasing is accompanied by a predictable suite of vocalizations including hoots, grunts, and whines (see below). Typically, one to several birds chase a single bird. While resting between bouts of chasing, the chased bird and the chasing bird will often hoot back and forth. Hooting typically ends when one bird, typically the bird being chased, retreats. Hooting bouts can also end in attacks and fighting between the hooting birds. Hoots are also sometimes made in the roost tree, both at dawn and dusk, and may involve hooting back and forth between group members, or a single bird hooting with other group members whining or grunting in response. Hoots are also referred to as 'conk' calls (Davis, 1940, Auk, 57).
