Red-legged Seriema - Cariama cristata Andrew Spencer 2012-10-11 Pousada Piuval, Transpantaneira km 12, MT, Mato Grosso (Brazil) (120 m) song -

natural vocalizations; prolonged song duet from a pair of birds on the ground, approximately 10m apart from each other and about 40m from me. While singing the birds didn't move along the ground at all, but sat in one spot with their necks slightly extended and their mouths wide open, with their bodies quivering a bit from the effort of singing.

Duet from a pair responding to playback and sitting very close together on ground on rise with open campo with a few scattered bushes. Both tugged heads back until they touched their backs as they sang. The bird giving the longer series regularly turned its head, whereas the bird with the shorter phrases tended to look straight ahead. Wind.
