Pretty bird, as long as you're wearing ear protection when you're looking at him!

Interesting. If I were to hear that sound outside I would never guess that was a bird.

I wouldn't guess it was a bird either. Definitely different and certainly compelling, it would sure get attention. To me that sound is reminiscent of certain types of sirens used on emergency services vehicles or the kinds of sirens used to alert communities to evacuate or seek shelter from sudden incoming threats/emergencies.

Nice dude,

These bird Brazilian bird's shriek at sounds very high up to 125.4 decibels, it means if this bird can come near ear and speak then our human ear can be Burst or he/she can be Deaf.

Yeah, it sounds like some special effect from a synthesizer.

Glad I don't have any of those in my backyard. Would be really annoying if they sang at night!

Mother Nature beat us humans to inventing many of the more sophisticated gadgets we have. Digital cameras exist in our eyes and brains and a binary code is used to send them between the two.
