Smew - Mergellus albellus Jarek Matusiak 2012-12-20 Warszawa (near Warsaw), Warszawa, Masovian Voivodeship, Mazowieckie (Poland) (70 m) alarm call, male -

Some kind of alarm/hostile voice in interaction with Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula) displaying about females around females of both species. In 1:06.581 ; 2:07.659 can be the female.

I could not find any satisfactory description of it sounds so please have in mind than mine can be misleading because of distance 300 - 400 m from the birds.

Unusual situation than birds in winter place giving voice.

The sound of ice floe in the background
