Comments

Not sure what happened to the gain on the recorder, but it was turned way down, making this recording quite abysmal. Nevertheless, it's a rare recording of begging call of downy young N. ornata.

Observation details

*lifer; male with 5 downy chicks in tow. Male made his way slowly across the road and four chicks ran swiftly across once he was safely on the other side. One loner became separated and did not cross, which kept the male in the area on the other side giving low "hooo" notes (photos M. Iliff) in response to the chicks piping (tape, Dan Lane)
