Bushy-crested Jay - Cyanocorax melanocyaneus John van Dort 2014-10-17 Cerritos de Ayasta, Francisco Morazán (Honduras) (1500 m) call -

A group of at least 8 individuals, some adults and some juveniles. The bird in the foreground of the first part is an adult, later a juvenile is heard nearby (they sound practically the same, though; this is based on eye and bill color, not on call type). They were in second growth oak woodland, and decided to scold me.
