Lesser White-fronted Goose - Anser erythropus Doug Gochfeld 2013-06-22 St. Paul Island, Alaska, St. Paul Island, Pribilofs (United States) (25? m) call -

Calls from an apparently slightly nervous bird on the ground. This species is a Mega vagrant on St. Paul, and so had presumably very recently traveled hundreds of miles over water before arriving. Ryan O'Donnell helped remove some wind noise from the recording by running it through a high-pass filter, and removing some noise. Original audio is available upon request.

Lesser White-fronted Goose - Anser erythropus Matthias Feuersenger 14-02-2010 Bosse, Lower Saxony (Germany) (16 m) call (C) - Lesser white-fronted goose giving a single high and squeaky call (after 1,5 sec in the recording) sounding almost like wigeon. Shortly after this the bird flew off with some bean geese and was impossible to hear in the general noise. No good recording but added for being unusual. 44578

Lesser White-fronted Goose - Anser erythropus Timo Janhonen 2016-09-05 Porsanger, Finnmark, Finnmark (Norway) (0 m) alarm call, call, female, flight call, juvenile, male -

Flock of 90 Lesser White-fronted Geese harassed by Gyr Falcon. The falcon hovers above the flock for a while, the geese get split into two groups which form very dense protective clusters. The falcon perches on the ground next to the geese flocks giving up its hunt and the geese take off. Seldom seen LWfG behaviour as the geese don't mind e.g. Peregrines or White-tailed Eagles flying by. Different story with Gyr Falcon...
