NOTES: MADE IN AMPHITHEATER AREA OF LNS 980. A LONG DRAWN-OUT 'OOUW' WITH RISING THEN FALLING INFLECTION. DOES NOT HAVE 'YUKS' AT END AS IN 980 WHICH WAS TAPED ON 25 NOV. THE 'YUKS' STOPPED DURING THE FIRST WEEK IN DEC. BUT WERE VERY PROMINANT 1 MALE(S)FROM OUR ARRIVAL ON 13 NOV. UNTIL DEC. SOME HAVE REPORTED THAT 'YUKS' ARE HEARD IN SOME LOCALITIES AND NOT IN OTHERS. FUTURE STUDY IS NEEDED TO DETERMINE WHETHER THIS IS A MATTER OF LOCATION OR SEASONAL TIMING. CALLING BIRD WAS RECORDED FLYING OVER NE. Same subject(s) as LNS 980. Other Behaviors: Arrive, Mate.
