Tropical Rainforest Sounds

ACTS Field Station, Peruvian Amazon


…a rainy night in the Amazon jungle…


The calls of an ochre-striped antpitta, recorded in Peru.

Dusky titi monkey, Peru. Listen to the sound of a whole troupe...


Great tinamou and chick, Panama


Keelbilled toucan calling: listen to the "warm-up" ratcheting at the start. There's a red-capped manakin displaying nearby. Listen for the snaps and buzzes. Recorded in Panama.


Chestnut-backed antbirds, recorded and sketched in Panama. The squirrel was there, too, an innocent bystander.

    After days of searching on the internet, having to avoid youtube due to my school filtering it, I came across this web page and was delighted! I am a primary school teacher and I am doing a topic on the Caribbean and Rainforests. Finding your sounds was fantastic just before I had given up hope of finding something that was not just waves crashing on the shore.

    Once again, thank you!

    What a wonderful combination sketches with sound. Now if we can only get touch and smell included it would be perfect. Thanks again for sharing!
    Happy Exploring, Daryl
