Long recording of many different cuts over the course of about an hour of different parts of a flock of 19 individuals mixed with primarily Lesser Yellowegs, which are also prominent in several of the sections. Dowitchers mostly giving typical "peek" calls, but also lower conversational calls as the groups foraged. Some playback to elicit responses in early cuts, focused mostly on three individuals, but then later cuts of a larger part of the flock essentially natural. At 4:13, most of the group took flight, possibly in response to my presence, although they ignored me otherwise. Best sections probably from about 8:00 to 16:50. Lots of hiss from wind in nearby cottonwoods mars most of the recording, despite close proximity to the birds throughout.
