First activity @ 5:41 AM: "ao" calls slightly down the slope. @ 5:44 AM a bird up hill started "ao" calls, while bird down hill gave very quiet whine. None of foregoing was recorded.
First recording is of courtship growls, etc. Then there was a flight display, then courtship growling. Then after some silence (mostly not saved) there begins some "bother" calls. Then more "courtship growls," then "ao" calls. Then birds moved from new position--not saved, too poor recording; then some saved @ end or indication that male followed female around and this interplay occasionally involves sharp bother cries (due to presence of a third bird?).
Quality: 3 to 1-2 to 2.
