Mic inputs usesd on ATR-700 (20 db attention) for copy.] The call I call the Roh-roh-roh call sounds likek the Landing call given by herons at the colony and is generally given in association with an Arched Neck or Neck Extended display. [Cut was off-speed.Vari-speed used on ATR-700, 9 o'clock position. ATR-700, 2tk copy at LNS.]. Other Behaviors: Advertise. Habitat: Forest, Evergreen Forest, Deciduous Forest, Mudflat.
