24/7 Lecture: The relationship between locomotive behavior and vocal behavior in monk parakeets (Myopsitta monachus)

Posted on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 by for 24/7 Lecture.

24 seconds: Monk parakeets are social birds who breed collonially.This observational study examined the relationship between the locomotive behaviors of monk parakeets and vocalizations through video analysis. While there were no statistically significant correlations found, observations suggest potential connections between the two variables, particularly flight and chatter/contact calls. Further research could explore factors influencing behavior and voice call usage, shedding light on the cognitive processes of these parakeets.
