    Equipment Note

The first bird (male) was perched in a large tree approx. 12 ft. from the ground. It was vocalizing while facing the microphone and intermittently turning its head left and right approx. 90 degrees. The second bird (female) lands on the same branch as the first bird approx. 2-3 ft. away from it. The two birds fly off with the male chasing the female. They land near the base of a second tree approx. 1-2 ft. from the ground. The female moves to the ground and the male flies off and lands in a third tree. It does not vocalize from this position.
