The Birds of Isla Vieques

This is a field recording I made on my computer one morning when I couldn't get back to sleep. Barring rain, a distant rooster would start at exactly 0350 and the rest of the island would wake up in a rolling euphonic wave, rushing steadily toward our door over the next fifteen minutes, until it ended up sounding like this. If you can identify these birds, please comment!

Apologies for the rustling of bed sheets and the heinous fan noise at the end but there's one super loud squawk. If it bugs you, edit away.
