Brooklyn Parrots Speak Out!

A wild monk parrot in Edgewater, New Jersey, sounds off on a Spring day
So what do these parrots sound like? Well, decided to record them, and we're glad to share these sounds with the World Wide Web. Here are the files:

A short (one minute) sound recording taken of the Brooklyn Parrots last March. Two birds are perched about 15 feet up one of the light poles at the athletic field, their calls become intermixed with a larger group speaking vociferously from the nest at the top of this pole.

A longer, 11 minute sampling of the parrots as they chat, argue, signal each other, and otherwise raise a ruckus on the Brooklyn College Campus. Recorded March, 2005.
