White-throated Screech Owl - Megascops albogularis Dan Lane 2002-07-25 Camp Utter Solitude, Bosque de Proteccion Alto Mayo, San Martin dept., San Martín (Peru) (2300 m) song -

Response to whistled imitation (which were given during the recording, but I have removed, so spacing of vocalizations presented here not natural) from a bird seen (after the recording ended) as a silhouette (a large Megascops) that flew up to the top of a 4m snag and then departed upon seeing me. Humid temperate forest. After playback of this recording, the bird returned and was seen well, confirming it was M. albogularis.
