Attenborough got the wrong bird

It happens all the time the other way around (Red-tailed Hawk calls dubbed
into film willy nilly. Tonight I caught out another error on Attenborough’s
Planet Earth on TV. A bit featuring the Sonoran desert in SW USA and him
explaining how the saguaro cactus is able to absorb a lot of water. During
that bit, it featured calls of a Whistling Kite. I doubt there is any USA
fauna that makes the same call as our bird.
