As social animals, the birds at the Hamilton Aviary love to receive attention for the sounds they produce. Some of the vocalizations mimic humans speech, whereas other vocalizations are simply the natural sounds produced by the varied bird species at the Aviary.
We are pleased to be able to share with fellow bird-lovers some of the many bird vocalization available at our facilities.
