The forests of Santa Rosa National Park in northwest Costa Rica are home to some of the most fantastic birds in Central America. I study the vocal behaviour of birds living in the tropical dry forest and the fragments of old-growth humid forest within this park. On this webpage you can hear recordings of the songs from some common birds of Santa Rosa. I also present recordings of monkeys and other animals commonly found in the Santa Rosa forests. Explore the recordings by clicking the links to the Bird Songs page, the Other Animals page, and the Credits & Links page. You can also explore the songs of Rufous-and-white Wrens and Long-tailed Manakins in detail on their own pages.

Listen to the ominous screams of Mantled Howler Monkeys, the piercing shouts of White-faced Capuchin Monkeys, the skittish whimpers of Spider Monkeys, and more.
