NOTES: Cover density: THICK; L.F. MAJOR. CUT STARTS WITH A SEQUENCE OF FLUTE-SNARL-FLUTE WHICHIS REPEATED 3 TIMES. THIS IS FOLLOWED BY A BREAK, AND THE PAIR SEEMS TO TEST OUT ANOTHER SEQUENCE WITH AN UNUSUAL FLUTE OR 'KUTCH' SOUND AND PART SNARL WHICH AGAIN GOES INTO THE FLUTE-SNARL-FLUTE. IT IS PROBABLE THAT THIS RECORDING IS NOTED IN THORPE'S MONOGRAPH 'DUETTING AND ANTIPHONAL SONG IN BIRDS', CAMBRIDGE UNIV. PRESS, 1972. SEE PAGE 23, MUSICAL EXAMPLE 77. Habitat: Forest, Lake.
