Copulation and pre-copulation calls. Pre-copulation calls are the high-pitched chips. Recorded at James Grier's home. Calls given by Grendell II.

BNA: I can add nothing to the above notes, given that neither BNA nor Ellis (1979. Development of behavior in the Golden Eagle. Wildl. Monogr. 709:1-94) described a pre-copulation or even a copulation call by the males, and it is unclear to me whether these calls are homologous to the "pssa"-like call said to be given by the female during copulation. I suppose that this could also represent the "Honk" Call, given that the bird may have been manipulated manually (the voice announcement indicated something about picking the bird up).
