Steve Curwood and Dan Grossman recorded the dawn chorus of birds at Iguaçu Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil.


CURWOOD: We leave you this week deep in the rain-forest.


A chorus of brilliant-colored birds greets the dawn near Iguaçu Falls close to the border of Brazil and Argentina.


There are over a hundred bird species in the area -- including toucans, motmots, woodpeckers, flycatchers, antbirds, and manakins.


Dan Grossman and I recorded this dawn chorus when we visited the falls a few years ago.
