In reply to WendyBartter:
***It may be that you are seeing her constantly making calls to the male Kate, watch as her beak opens ever-so-slightly ... sound would be great from this cam! Just had a look & she's doing it now ... even does it right after he's come in & mated, no wonder he doesn't always stop long!! Lol***
will try for clip with sound via laptop!
