The range of hearing in many species of birds is comparable with that of mankind. Having a greatest sensitivity between 2000 and 4000 hertz (cycles per second). This is partly why bird song is so useful in bird identification - it is easy for us to hear - and partly why we find bird song so pleasant.

The only bird known to make use of infrasound (at about 20 Hz) is the western capercaillie. The hearing range of birds is from below 50 Hz (infrasound) to around 12 kHz, with maximum sensitivity between 1 and 5 kHz. The black jacobin is exceptional in producing sounds at about 11.8 kHz. It is not known if they can hear these sounds.

5/20/2011 · Hiya, We bought a rat sonic repeller today and we're wondering if this would effect cockatiels? The sonic repeller sweeps a frequency of 30,000-60,000Hz (30-60kHz) and I've taken a look at the caution notice which clearly states it only effects rodent species. I've also looked online on what Hz or kHz cockatiels listen in on, and it appears well below this (200-8000Hz on one web page).

Parakeet Hearing Range Hearing is done by the vibration of parts of your ear. The measurement of sound is done in Hertz, or Hz. This measures how low or high a tone is. It has nothing to do with decibels - which is a measure of how loud or soft a tone is. Human beings are typically able to hear from a low note of 64hz up to a high note of 23,000hz.

Ultrasonic bird repeller puts out 90 dB of sound pressure at 1 meter. There is an adjustable frequency range of 15 to 25 kHz to cover up to 900 square feet. This is beyond the range of normal human hearing so it is harmless to children, it is but well within the audible range of birds, and works to scare them off.
