RE: emu encounters



Beg pardon in advance for taking this further off-topic...
 
Is anyone aware of an emu- or cassowary-call (that is, a device that
imitates the bird's sounds)?

Dinosaur content: didn't someone make a Parasaurolophus call from a skull
cast?  (and are copies available?)

Thanks,
Barry Groves

Here is the relevant text, taken from the Handbook of the Birds of the
World:

"Outside the breeding season, emus normally silent, except during 
confrontations, or when they come across strange objects; on such occasions 
both sexes make "grunting" and "booming" sounds, although males "boom" less 
often.
