NOTES: All in response to playback of pre-recorded song. Bird flew in from over 100m away on tundra and landed 15-25m from us on the road. Gerrit did playback and we were both crouching on the road. Note that most vocs at beginning of each cut are playback. Most long calls were right after landing, followed by well spaced short calls. Response to playback: Approach. Response to playback: Normal song. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Tundra, Arctic Tundra.
