  • Recorder: Marsi C87. Microphone: Sennheiser MD21.

Habitat: Upper tree limit with sparse spruce and firs standing on short-grassed alpine pasture. Notes: The whizzing sound heard from tine to time (choweee or chooee) comes from the singing males at least one of which was perched on top of a spruce. Since the hen's calls are rarely reorded, I tried first of all to get all of their calls. A better recording of a displaying male (on treetop) is heard towards the end of the tape.
