NOTES: "A large flock is put up by a pigeon hawk trying to pick off one bird in flight. Flock eventually moves away. In last 15secs. flight calls by one bird." (WWHG)

[Wing fluttering and flight calls by a large flock of migrant shorebirds (many apparently this species). A few "krree" calls (following terminology of BNA) heard by a single individual in the latter half of the first part of this recording, but the best, single call (at 1:33) appears to refer instead to Calidris minutilla. Quality 2-3 (at best) - CAM - 7 December 2004]
