Two birds interacting with quiet calls, kind of contact notes as they came close together

I also wish you had New Caledonia as a separate political entity and not just as France!

Kagu - Rhynochetos jubatus Mark O'Brien 2015-02-27 Sarraméa, Province Sud, South Province (mainland) (New Caledonia) (280 m) song -

No modification to recording. The bird started calling about 20 seconds before I started recording. This is the total length of the call. No other Kagu calls came from this area, that morning. Forest habitat, bird was on the ground maybe <30m into forest - I went into forest to search, but saw nothing. Bird(s) not seen. Most mornings there was a chorus of Kagu - singing from 4 or 5 locations in the area. This is the only time (in 7 mornings that I've stayed at the site) that birds were calling so close to the accommodation.

bird-seen:no
