The Black-faced Solitaire (Myadestes melanops) is generally considered to have the most beautiful song in Costa Rica, where he is called the "Jilguero", and where the song has led to high demand as a caged bird. Here is an example of one of their songs, sung softly and very close to me in the same preserve.
