If you noticed more than one or two calls it was probably too much. And 
was probably the wrong calls for day calls.

It should be said more like they created a sound that they think is how 
the Carolina Parakeet sounded. I don't think there are any recordings of 

Similar to the sounds that are created for dinosaur calls.

What they created is a imaginary soundscape. How much, if any that it 
resembles the actual soundscape is unknown. It's probably much noisier 
than the original for starters.
