Noisy Baby

Posted by

Clark's nutcracker series

These are noisy, gregarious birds that have a raspy, grating "kraaaak" call that may be insistently repeated 4-5 times in rapid succession. The pitch can vary but is typically constant throughout one call.

All babies are noisy...all of them, no exception made! I was surprised to hear how noisy sparrow chicks are, you wouldn't believe it that a ball of feathers can give off such sounds! They never give up, cry and cry and cry....whether they are hungry of not!
An your chick here already has some personality...look at that attitude!
