Media notes

Type 2 "kweek calls" as described by Winkler & Short (1978: Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist. 160:1-109). Few examples of this call on archive and none outside of breeding season. Two individuals (male and female) chasing each other around a small ponderosa pine approximately five meters from me. Additional male flew into adjacent tree. Much less commonly heard call then Double Call or rattle.
