    I've talked about this before. How Echo doesn't seem to have a large vocabulary when it comes to calls. He does talked and will talk up a storm using words and cockatoo gibberish. But this is his main call and doesn't it really vary all that much. To me it sounds like a distress call but I could be way off base. Echo uses this call no matter what his mood.

    I'm just curious how normal is it? And how often your birds use it? @Macawnutz @JLcribber @melissasparrots and @cassiesdad Any thoughts? I do have more video clips if you want to hear more. Personally I find his call grating so you may not :lolsign: Oh and I really think the video does it justice too

    I don't own a cockatoo but I do spend a lot of time around them right now and out of the 5 I'm around, 3 will do the exact same VERY loud call! One is a baby and just finding her voice but man she is loud! She's got the crazy 'too sound down!

    I assumed the M2 sounded the same. The ones I have heard do. Maybe it's Zane that's weird? No? I've not spent a lot of time with M2.

    Sounds like a normal cockatoo to me. Although Ariel doesn't scream much. Come to think of it, I think its probably been a few weeks since she's had much to say.

    M2s I've been around have more varied calls. I think Zane tops them all though. Lol You should hear the sounds that come out my boy! He had rooster one, a yup yup yup one, a whatcha doing one, ect... The weirdest one is the one is that sounds like a monkey!! That one is pretty rare and its been ages since I've heard it. I assume Zane is wild caught so maybe that explains all the different calls. And the monkey thing maybe the people who caught him also caught a monkey??? I don't know lol I have a feeling if Zane could talk he could tell some pretty wild stories :lol:

    Sounds normal to me...we hear the same type of vocalizations from Milton...usually when he wants to sound off about nothing in particular. I like when he sounds off and turns to directly face you...as if you couldn't hear him otherwise....:)

    I was a bird in a past life. My punishment was to come back as a human and have to look after one. :)

    When he came into the room here, I picked him up, put him in my lap, and let him see Echo again...Milty was not a happy camper, to say the least! He began to sway and huff and puff at the computer...
