We all have loud birds, or at least birds that can be loud when they choose. Of all of my species notorious for ear splitting volume, my Princes of Wales Parakeet is not one of them. Last evening, my son was gaming online with friends from multiple countries. They were all in voice chat, he and several others through a headset while some had the sound running through their surround sound. For whatever reason, Remy felt the need to make his contact call. It’s a very high falsetto, break glass call......(I’m serious when I say this sound would give the Macaws and Goffins a run for their money. Apparently because of the guys who had things piped into their surround, it started an echo effect that liquified eardrums as far away as Australia. I’m told ten headsets went flying across the room followed by multiple outbursts of words I can’t type here along with a few offers to “make the bird disappear”... Apparently, spies are able to secretly listen in on chat. They are now trying to figure out how to coax the contact call out of Remy on command to clear the room.
