Heard a strange wuah-wuah-wuah call today in Parque Centinela, Guadalajara, Jalisco, that I didn't recognize. It turned out to be this species. Not sure if it was a young bird, but could be since I heard one or two other birds close by giving normal calls that could have been the parents. The bird had proportions as an adult, but I didn't study it closer.
