Media notes

Watched these two individuals bouncing, flapping, wing-raising, calling, and clucking at one another in the driveway. CONIs in the background.

Observation details

On tonight’s episode of THE COPO SHOW: 5 minutes after they started calling, two plopped down in the gravel in front of where we sat on the edge of the deck. Both started head-bobbing & clucking, one jumping up and leaping toward the other, spreading his wings then landing, stretching his wings out one at a time as he wobbled back and forth. They leaped at each other a few times, landed and clucked some more before ending the show to go catch bugs around the driveway. Audio is of this performance. Two other individuals were calling from the other side of the cabin and up the hill.
