Ryan,



Great idea recording the call! I've never heard a ptarmigan's voice even though I've seen them quite a bit.

Thanks Bob. I've heard them make some quavery noises when they're together in a group, but it's only during mating season that I hear them go nuts like that!

Thanks, it was a weird idea, so I'm happy it was so well received here.
