Dear Judi and Neil

Your description of the two AKs displaying to each other took me to Hanzab.
It sounds a bit like what Hanzab calls "Waving Display", two birds flying
low over water and then perched facing each other, moving wings backward and
forward exposing buff undercoverts. Also at one point one flying in circles
around the other. Display continued for 20 minutes with both giving high
pitched whistles. Function not known!
