NOTES: Recorded at or near Joeb Woods' cabin. 80Hz HPF on Sound Devices 744T. One bird present here, though over the next couple of days, there were two individuals. They were clearly prospecting for a nest site on the front porch of Joeb Wood's cabin. We observed them fly through the open-air porch, and a few times perch on wood ledges. This is probably a fairly good record for the outer Colville River Delta. Habitat: Tundra, Arctic Tundra, Lake.
