Here a father Gambel's Quail teaches his sons about the appropriate time to crow. The youngsters are crowing in response to another youngster a few hundred meters away, but we are too close, and the father "hushes" the adolescent enthusiasm with a harsh "cluck" just as the young one crows. He does this four times in this sample, but he did it over and over until the student stopped.
