Media notes

Alarmed by recordists' presence at what appeared to be a nesting territory. Sitting very quietly with an occasional head movement. Bird attracted and induced to call by playback of pre-copulation display recorded in 1967. This bird was attracted to this playback and remained in the area for some time giving this alarm note. This tape contains only the alarm notes. Habitat: Tundra.
