Phasianus colchicus x P. c. pallasi. This bird was impossible to approach without causing him to stop crowing. Crows came at approximately two-minute intervals, so the recorder was turned on and off in between bouts.
ML: 1.5 kHz high-pass filter.
Habitat: Open field with adequate cover.
BNA: The Crowing Call ("Ko-or OK" or "koork-kok") is heard throughout the recording. CZ 13/02/2004.
