    I know it is not the A&M, that thing is SO LOUD!!! I am not sure if this is the button cock I have or if it is the other A&M making this call. It is very sweet sounding, so I'm thinking the button. It kind of sounds like a bird tweeting. It is a four 'syllable' call, three different pitches. It is hard to explain, but the first and last sounds it makes sound the same, with the two middle ones higher. [​IMG] I know I'm not making any sense, but I know what I mean! [​IMG]

    I know the button that I have is male, and one A&M is male. All 3 of these are about 5 weeks old.

    Ok, let me try to describe it better. Think of the musical scale (do-re-mi-fa-and so on). Let's say the first and last notes are both 'do's, with the second being 'mi' and the third being 're'. Understand?? [​IMG]
