Thank you! That was very informative and interesting! I would have liked the chart to include psittaformes but, as we all know, there are not enough studies done on them...

I did include frequency response cited from a different chart that did reference cockatiels and budgies. The differences between them were slight and close enough to other (non-owl) birds to lead to the conclusion that most bird related stats are representative across the spectrum. Click the source links for more info but my article summed it up for what parrot owners need to know.
