Hi, if you saw my other thread you would know I brought home a 2 year old bronze wing pionus about 5 days ago named Gamura. At first things seemed great. After being deathly quiet and spooked for about 4 hours in the cage she was clearly begging to be let out, flew right to me, hung out on my shoulder, stepped up eagerly, wouldn't take treats but was very vocal. I figured maybe since she liked me when I met her before bringing her home that she still liked me. Things were great for the first day and a half. Midday the next day she was on my shoulder and clearly wanted back in her cage, i put her in. Nothing out of the ordinary happened but from that moment forward she decided she doesnt' trust me and is clearly very nervous around me. Won't step up in her cage at all (when i realized this i backed off and pretty much have since then. I'm letting her go at her own pace), wouldn't come out for a whole day. Did start eagerly but cautiously taking treats from hand though. But since then she's slowly started coming out of the cage and getting more and more vocal, only wanting to step up when she's on top of her cage as she can't get down and knows I'll help her down. Today something really seems to have gotten to her, she's hardly made a sound all day and hasn't come out of her cage once even though she spent most of the day on top of her cage or on the door yesterday (that's the farthest she ventures out. I just leave the door open). What I'm mostly wondering about is just some things she's doing as she seems at times like she's trying to communicate in some way. I honestly can't find much information on Bronze wing and pionus in general body language and mannerisms as they're just not common birds compared to amazons and such. 1. The soft chitter sounds she make are happy noises I assume as I see vids of them making them while being pet or clearly contended. She would make them at almost a frantic pitch when I was out of the room or not within eyeshot, just louder and more frantic chitters, almost excited. She's often on one foot and fluffed up in her cage which I assume is relaxed body language like with amazons. Does this change in frequency/urgency of vocalizations mean something? 2. She will on occasion make low pitched raspy almost like gibberish words. It sounds like she's trying to emulate speech (I'm 90% positive she's saying I love you at times but only when she does this specific vocalization.) but they're much lower pitched then the chittering vocalizations she's usually making. I've heard her make them when she was on my shoulder when she first came home, and once or twice when she was running from my hand when i first realized she no longer was willing to step up and was now frightened of me. I ASSUME these are fear response vocalizations? 3. She does this the same way every time and i've heard about Bronze Wings doing something similar. She so far hasn't touched a single toy, but will at random times when she was in a chattery mood, climb to the top of her cage, hang like a vampire bat, point her head downwards, look right at me and start chattering insanely frantically sorta similar to the vocalizations in 1, but even MORE excited. She Only does this when i'm around, and only does it for about 10 seconds. She will be on her perch, see me walk near the cage, climb up to the top of the cage, hang and talk excitedly and stare right at me, then go right back to her safe space perch in the back of the cage. I have no idea if this is play or what? If any experienced bronze wing owners can shed light on these or other common body languages or behaviors it would be an immense help.
