Capuchin calls

Filed under: crofootStories — crofoot @ 9:52 pm

My friend Patrick lent me his recording equipment last week, and this
is one of the recordings I made of capuchin vocalizations. 
Mostly, what you are hearing is juveniles, but there is one adult “lost
call” (quite far away) at the beginning of the recording.  I’ve
been playing around with the idea of trying to run a playback
experiment to tease apart the effects of location and group identity in
intergroup relationships.  It sounds like a lot of fun, but I’m a
little worried that side-projects sounding this much more appealing
than my main project is symptomatic of a certain stage of dissertation
research, and I should resist the temptation to dabble.  We’ll
see, I guess.

  1. Hi Meg,
    I stumbled accross your web site on Google and I thought I would drop a line to say hi. Your work in Panama looks very interesting and it looks like you are really enjoying it (you even have kind of a “Jane Goodall” look going on MUCH younger of course ) . I know, I know, she was a chimp scientist and you are an orangutan gal, but I thought I would make the comment anyway. I have a friend who served in the 82nd airborne division and was stationed in Panama for a while – from what he told me just about every other creature you run into down there is poisonous or wants to take a bite out of you, so be careful! Well anyway, I just wanted to say hi, and that I enjoyed the pics and comments posted on your web site.
    Take care,
