According to the zoo, sunrise is prime time howling time for these monkeys. From the zoo:
This “dawn chorus” announces the howlers’ position to avoiding conflict with other groups. Their call can be heard more than three miles away. The dimorphic monkeys—males are black, females are gold—rarely come down from the trees they live in and use their strong prehensile tail as a fifth limb, allowing them greater versatility when climbing.What better gift than a healthy baby for Christmas 2020.
