When we arrived at the oxbow lake, the first birds we saw were a group of Horned Screamers. The screamers are a group of south american birds related to the ducks. While we watched, they performed their namesake calls.

There are three screamer species, the other two being the Southern Screamer and the Northern Screamer in the genus Chauna.
