This is not a conspiracy and I apologise for that. You know how it is when you can't find out the answer to something and it is driving you slowly mad. I have scoured every conceivable site and source that I can think of. I frequently ask people and everyone says they know what I am asking but are unable to supply the information. In desperation I turn to the the denizens of ATS, whom I know to be the font of all knowledge.

If ever there is a film, a tv show, or radio programme that is set in the tropics there is bird call that is used to create the atmosphere. It sounds like a long drawn out, slightly electronic, and somewhat indignant shout of Oyyyyyyyyyyy. I am sorry I have nothing else to help identify the bird in question because that is what I am trying to find out. This has been bugging me for a very long time and anyone who can solve this for me can have my firstborn and my kingdom and I'll throw in the elixir of eternal youth for good measure.

Is it perhaps the Kookaburra? It's all I could find

It may take you a bit of time to find it, but these are a catalog of bird calls.

Good Luck.

That's kind of similar but the call I'm referring to sounds like it would come from a smaller canopy dwelling bird, but thank you for taking the time to try and help.

I reposted the video, it was working on my end so if it still doesn't work I put the link to youtube as well.

No problem
Hope you find the bird-i know how vexing it can be when one wonders about something and you cannot find out more.

This region is a prime hadeda area,they are always on my lawn,flying over our yard,belting out those calls of theirs.I really like them.

Thanks, that's is not the one but I do very much appreciate your efforts to end my torment.

mymymy nailed it, the kookaburra call has been used in a few movies including The Wizard of Oz and a few other movies to make a location seem exotic, and movies like Star wars used walrus and wolf sounds to create Chewbaccas...Voice?

It happens-film and TV has changed and video and audio can be altered, for instance many movies use the Wilhelm scream despite the fact the movie it came from has gotta be at least 60 years old, and The Matrix was filmed in Sydney Australia but it's Iconic landmarks were digitally erased to make it look like an American city.

That's entertainment!

It's not the one that I am trying to find. As I said I hear it often in films and radio to create the tropical atmosphere but it may not actually be tropical I suppose.

I didn't really think it was either, but I hoped. I'm pretty sure I know exactly what you mean but I can't seem to word it correctly either lol

Maybe google birds of paradise, they have distinct calls in mating season.

I've tried putting 'bird with oy call' and countless other combinations thereof, all to no avail.

I've tried that countless times. I'm asking ATS because I cannot think of any other, or better places to look.

I bet it's a peacock, As a kid i remember always hearing some strange bird call when ever people were in a forest or jungle, I always thought it sounded so exotic. I got real excited be cause I heard it one day at my then girlfriends house ( now wife) I thought it would be some tree dwelling crow like bird...Nope someone in her neighborhood owned a peacock and it would go strutting around making the noise. Since I associated it with forests and jungles I was in a bit of shock to know all that time each time I heard it there was a big ol star spangled turkey making the sound somewhere.

A great bird that makes a great noise. A lot of the stately homes and parks here in the UK have resident peacocks and I'm familiar with their call. Thanks for taking the trouble to help, and I enjoyed the video as well.

Is it a chirp or a long droning noise? I'm no avian expert but birds seem to be more 'chirpy' in equatorial regions but i'm just guessing so that doesn't help.
