Comments

Contact calls of this species in addition to flight-display of male in background at the end. I believe the calls are of note-type "C", but they could have been of type "E" instead (following Rusch et al. 1996, BNA). There is an Aerial Display in the latter part of the recording, followed by four or five "Dive Sounds" at the end of the recording, several of which are in the background of announcement. The single "Chip" note at the beginning was given by Calypte anna. (09Dec2004).
