From the quiet business hub of Belleville (“beautiful town“au français), to the island capital of Bridgetown, one of the newest species of flying visitors – green parrots gather and travel. Their signature calls resonate like an orchestra string section in the atmosphere, as they make their perfectly-punctual evening trip home to the trees.
Between 5 and 6pm, the echoing of the green parrots’ calls are number one on the playlist of sounds in an area where, at any other hour during the day, the intermittent passing swoosh of a car or few is the most present sound within a community of a few homes, many businesses, and eleven avenues.
The green parrots’ song adds a refreshing element to the ears, and their flight is a sight to behold in the sunsetting island sky.
These are the authentic sounds of green parrots traversing from Belleville to the outskirts of Bridgetown. Thanks for tuning in and please visit the Creation Sounds page for more birdsongs and nature sounds of Barbados.
