Media notes

NOTES: We attracted these birds by waving our arms and handkerchiefs. Then played back some of their calls. This caused a lot of talking between the birds. The young birds seemed the boldest and came closer.; Purpose of sound: calling during neck bobbing and general talk.; Behavior accompanying vocalization: neck bobbing; When animals were not vocalizing they were feeding. Habitat: Lake.
