    Equipment Note

Loud, crowing calls and soft, nervous twittering. A recording of two wood partridges made on a previous day was played in this bird's territory. His first response was from about 250m (this was not recorded) and the next at 100m. The bird became visible at about 40m. The bird would emerge from the hedgerow, crow, and then duck back. When not crowing, the bird uttered nervous twitters.

At about 20m the bird ran across an open space within 4m of the recorder and began circling the surrounding brush. A more distant (about 200m) wood partridge became stimulated and crowed and the two began to challenge each other. While running, the bird lifted its wings like a rooster attacking.
