Male sings as nest change over then the close contact "kek" calls of both male and female heard. The male came into the area--but the female remained on the nest. He was foraging until 0915 when they changed. The male then moved off again and called from a distance, but almost immediately came in close again. Female changed with male but 5 min. later he returned--female then left.
The cut ends with an active call of the male likely ? he had seen a potential nest predator.
