    Equipment Note

At the beginning of the recording, a single pigeon is approx. 12 ft. from the mic. It flies away and the mechanical sound of the wings can be heard. It also makes a "honking" vocalization. A parakeet then flies overhead at approx. 20 ft. from the mic. Then the second pigeon can be heard making a similar "honking" vocalization and also making some mechanical sounds with its wings. The third pigeon can then be heard in the distance making the "cooing" vocalization. Visual contact with this bird is not established
