NOTES: High-pass filter engaged on microphone. As I walked down the Center Patrol Road, at least 4 Charadrius vociferus walked ahead of me calling from a distance of about 12-15m. As I attempted to record them and other birds, they maintained their distance and vocal persistence for many cuts in the middle portion of this tape. To some degree, these birds were disturbed by my presence, and I do not think they would have been as vocal without me there.
