      Superb! Great combination of the sound of each species with the Braveheart's background :) I guess that would be too difficult to find the call records of dodo and Carolina parakeet (but for the latter, an average conure squeak would fit) :)

      @Kakapo Thanks! I got the recordings fro Xeno Canto's website. I did try to find the calls for the Dodo & Carolina Parakeet but couldn't find any and almost decided to try to "tweak" some calls (Crowned Pigeon for Dodo/parakeet species for Carolina Parakeet), but finally decided it was best to leave them silent...... a warning to save other living species from their fate. I'm glad the Braveheart soundtrack works. I often have a difficult time finding the "perfect" soundtrack for my videos so thank you! :)

      Of course, sound recordings were not invented until after dodo and parakeet went exinct ;) but the fact is that the similar conures (Aratinga, Pyrrhura, etc) have a similar call and probably the Carolina parakeet too, while the dodo have no living close relatives (Nicobar pigeon being the closest, but yet in another family) and in pigeons/doves there are considerable variation in sound between species of the same genus (compare a wood pigeon with a common pigeon, or turtle with collared doves...)
