NOTES: "Calls of male and female, wing sounds (last part mostly Oldsquaws-see cut 5); Snow Goose wing beat in first minute; Recorded by Darryl Dahmer, give credit to NMC [National Museum of Canada]" (WWHG)

[This recording combines the clucking, "Gogogog..." Calls given by the female (see p. 609 of Cramp et al. 1977. The birds of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Birds of the Western Palearctic. Vol. 1. Oxford University Press, Oxford; this call not really described in BNA account) with the "cooing" of males. Quality changed from 2 to 2-3, 2 (mostly 2-3 due to low level, but somewhat better in places; the calls of Clangula hyemalis predominate in some parts, e.g., 2:56-3:56) - CAM - 18 March 2005]
