Comments

two call types from a pair of birds. The first cut contains 'wicka' calls as they perched on a very large cactus in a rocky draw filled with thornscrub and cacti. While giving the calls the birds held their wings out and swayed back and forth. The second cut is of more typical 'rolling' calls, with the male giving the louder and more on-focus calls.
