OK, I am having a brain infarct. Someone, maybe Elbert, tell me the name of the bird that makes that great racket at night on Ambergris Caye. It's so loud sometimes it seems as if it is in the house. Not sure how to describe it but sounds like something out of a Tarzan movie. Thanks.

Outside - probably an owl.
Inside - possibly Grey Goose.

Herons, they make lots of noise at night. The feed and fly and squawk a lot.

Could be Obama bleating about something but it sounds too honest to be him.

Pauraque? In Kriol a "Hooyu" although that word covers a range of night birds. It is a nightjar species.
