Media notes

Fairly musical sounding dawn flight calls of female Northern Pintails.

Silhouettes seen in flyover. Later identified sex and species by the recording obtained of their somewhat musical flight calls (recording uploaded) and the lack of long tail streamers eliminating the presence of any males.
