Comments

Multiple paris flying together at sunrise. Some individuals giving short chase to each other and others following each other (presumably males following females). A presumed male was seen following another individual at close distance and then broke away and soared up higher into the sky calling the whole time. It then folded in in wings and dove steeply towards the ground but pulled up and cupped the tips of its wings creating a whirring sound. It repeated this more than a dozen times while we observed.
