NOTES: Early evening on CNRS lek. All recordings except very end made from tree platform 13 m up and only 10 m from active males. Only 8 active males singing. Some staccato buzzes (indicating females inspecting males by hovering) in background. A few aggressive hacking sounds. Given small number of males, calling rates and call clarity fall off earlier than later in lek season.
