Parrot sounds

How To Build An Aviary
parrot sound effectsThe diversity of parrot sounds out there is incredible.
There are 372 species of parrots around the world, and it is their ability to imitate
human sounds that has made them a prized pet.

Every kind sounds a little bit different. Lovebirds, Budgerigars, cockatiels and many more, all have a unique voice.

Recording parrots

On my adventure to the local zoo I found out they had quite a few species of parrots. Their colors are great but as a recording engineer I was after the sound!

I was able to record Lovebirds tweeting, some Yellow fronted Amazons, Macaws, Cockatiel sounds and even an African grey parrot.
Since parrots love to chatter, all I had to do was get close enough to get a good audio signal.

Parrots are generally quite loud. On the first few recordings I realized the audio signal was off the roof. These birds are quite loud, when they shriek my recording device goes into clipping. After a few adjustments and lowering the gain of the preamp I got a great audio signal and I was satisfied.
