On 7 and 8 April 2013, a team from Dakatcha Woodland Conservation Group and A Rocha Kenya observed several hundred birds, males and females, actively flying back and forth across the grasses and sedges. They were making their buzzing, sizzling calls. Some males seemed to be displaying, others just perching on the sedges.

One male was weaving more sedge strips onto a nest.
