Contact Call - Definition of "Contact Call"

By

Definition: A Contact Call is a call that a bird makes when it is trying to establish the location of other members of its flock. In the wild, contact calls enable birds to keep in touch even when they are miles apart. Pet birds often use a contact call to communicate with their owners, even though some owners don't realize it!
Examples:
My Sun Conure's contact call is so shrill that the neighbors can hear it!
