What I call ‘ratchet’ calls, for lack of a better description, often occur when a juvenile pika is being chased by an adult. This is common when juveniles are mature enough to leave the nursery area and start establishing their own discreet territories. Conflicts with established adults are frequent. Here short calls are mixed in with the ratchet call.
