Grey Thrasher - Toxostoma cinereum David Vander Pluym 2018-10-22 Cabo Pulmo, Baja California Sur, Baja California Sur (Mexico) (20 m) call -

Bird roosted in a large Palo Verde every night we were present (5 nights prior). Different bird calls first and can be heard in the background. These calls would often be given if someone woke up during the night and made a sound or turned a light on. Calls also made at first light up to dawn but not heard during the day (birds would sing during the day). This call would often get several birds calling as well as nearby Northern Mockingbirds. Same bird as XC441000 and adjacent to the bird in XC441001. High pass filter ran and amplified. Domestic chicken and introduced House Gecko calling in the background as well.

Bird roosted in a large Palo Verde every night we were present (5 nights prior). Two different call types are given in this recording. The first call given in the recording would often be given if someone woke up during the night and made a sound or turned a light on. Calls also made at first light up to dawn but not heard during the day (birds would sing during the day). This call would often get several birds calling as well as nearby Northern Mockingbirds. This individual was adjacent to the individual in XC440999 and XC441000. High pass filter ran and amplified. Introduced House Gecko also in the background. Other Gray Thrashers are calling and singing in the background.

I know that there were Gray Thrashers there and it is a mimid song; I assume the calls at the end are Gray Thrasher, but I don't know, however if it is not Gray Thrasher, I have no idea what it is and there aren't many choices in that area
