Comments

I waited for a displaying bird to go into flight then placed my phone (recorder) on a stump right where he was landing and calling between flights. He landed within a few feet of the recorder and began calling. This recording begins with the bird making vocalizations during descent from display flight, landing within a few feet of the recorder, calling from the ground, then taking off into display flight again.

Observation details

Several birds calling by the time I arrived at 6:12. Display flights from 6:15 to 6:40; rather active displays, with birds only staying on the ground for 30 sec to 1 min between flights.
