Comments

Several different vocalization types given in this recording from what are probably two mated pairs having a territorial interaction. At start of recording two birds were present on the small area of open water, relatively silent. A second pair of birds arrives shortly into the recording and can be heard to land on the open water. Most of the pond was frozen and the geese can be heard coming into contact with the thin ice. Other Behaviors: Arrive. Habitat: Deciduous Forest, Pond. Equipment Notes: MS stereo original was decoded via SoundBlade when archived.
