Amazon’s male white bellbird is the world’s loudest bird


Amazon’s male white bellbird is the world’s loudest bird




The male white bellbird is the world’s loudest bird which hits 125.4 decibels.

This study was published in the journal Current Biology.

This was recorded by Biologist Jeff Podos at Brazil in the mountains of the northern Amazon.


The call of the male white bellbird (Procnias albus) is the loudest bird call recorded in the world.


The bellbird’s call can reach 125 decibels, almost as loud as a very loud rock concert, and more than 9 decibels higher than the loudest recorded call of the screaming piha (Lipaugus vociferans), which held the previous record of being the world’s loudest bird.
