2 white-breasted thrashers (both seen) on the ground jumping around each other while fanning their wings and calling. Perhaps a territory dispute. Dry habitat, difficult to see well in dense scrub. Close to a busy road and passing cars. Applied filter below 100 Hz to reduce road noise. Recorder handling noise mid-tape.

Birds of the West Indies
Most people associate the Caribbean with palm-fringed sandy beaches, cricket and rum. Mention the West Indies to birders and they think todies and tremblers, among a remarkable array of c. 190 endemic species. Furthermore, no fewer than six families are confined to the region, and another (spindalises) virtually so. The region also receives many vagrants from both North and South America, and even transatlantic arrivals from Europe.
