We have used Song Meters to monitor vocal activity of feral Monk Parakeets (Psitacidae) during the breeding season…we have been able to describe their daily cycle of vocal activity, as well as to estimate the great diversity of vocal signals involved in the communication of this species, with a special emphasis on those produced inside the nest.
