Descriptions
Identification
Heard an Eagle like call, which made me wonder especially the time when I heard it. Later on was going through possible ids based on what I remembered by comparing with calls from Xeno Canto and instantly recognised the call based on this recording (https://xeno-canto.org/428457)
Habitat/behaviour
The bird called around for a minute or 2 and I was around the spot from another minute before walking away. The area is a secondary forest.
Viewing conditions
It was post a thunderstorm in the evening and bird was not sighted.
Observer's experience w/similar species
Have heard the other form of call similar to this - https://xeno-canto.org/607715 around the gate to Upper Peirce Reservoir.
