    How loud is too loud for music?

    First off, this is my first post so I apologize if it's labelled wrong, in the wrong place, etc. Please correct me if it is. Moving on, I have two new lovebirds (new, like, bought yesterday new). I've been playing music for them constantly, and I'm unsure how loud is too loud. It's mostly pop or...

    Video Chirping when happy?

    If I get close enough to Romeo, (3 years old this past February) I hear almost like a whispering, chattering, while pacing side to side when he sees food, that he knows is his, in my hand. Romeo (☝A video of what I’m talking about)

    UVB light in closet advice?

    I live in an apartment with two roommates who are out for most of the day, most days of the week. I on the other hand, spend most of the day, most days of the week, at home by myself. Even when my roommates are studying at home, they like to wear noise-cancelling headphones. For this reason, I...

    Video I hear this every afternoon...

    This is the sound these guys make when they are winding down for a nap... Every single day. Bear in mind it is louder and more shrill in person. Sydney and Adélie don't get involved, this is all the blue team, mainly these two, Lapis and Nube. Why can't they just close their eyes and nap?...

    What does this sound mean?

    My little approx. 15 week old Ringneck guy makes plenty of different sounds. From loud contact calls, to tiny and adorable peeps. However, there's one sound he makes that I can't quite pinpoint. I've tried looking online for any info about bird sounds, but I can't find anything that sounds like...

    Video Aldoras ¨¨song¨¨

    :canthear::canthear::canthear: Yes, at 00:42 seconds, that is Lapis copying her mum! :arghh: :backout: Ps, the videos don´t really do the level of noise any justice...:dead:

    Second Cage??

    Hello parronts! I currently have an extremely spacious cage for my GCC. Pic attached. He's fine being in it while I'm within view but the moment I step into another room he starts whining. He's my alarm clock which I really dont mind... loud screeches in the morning are very welcome in my...

    Question About Birds and Schedules

    Hello! This is my first post to Avian Avenue (Yay!). My fiancé and I have a two year old Lovebird named Leo. He's got a huge personality for such a little guy! He lives in a very large enclosure, as we wanted to allow him some flying space when we are at work during the day. He also has many...

    Why does my cockatiel make THAT sound??

    Hi, I bought a handtame Cockatiel arround 2 weeks ago. She is lovely, flies around my room the entire day, eats like a queen and so on and so on. Now, sometimes when me or my brother move our fingers near her she makes this SOUND! I cant explain if its an angry sound or a plaiful sound, because...

    Is Aviation Safe?

    Hi everyone! I'm wondering if it would be safe to take my CAG in a general aviation aircraft (like a Cessna 172). These planes are rather loud inside, so I'm wondering if this would damage my parrot's hearing. Why would I want to do this? For traveling by personal aircraft instead of by car...

    Getting to birds at once - how to socialize with them?

    Hi guys! As I always say: I'm new here! I'm in the process of getting a bird! (currently I've been researching non stop about what species would better suit me and my lifestyle). - I've never owned a bird before, but I've been around some of them... - I live alone in a two bedroom apartment...

    Birds, College and foster homes

    Hi! I am a high school senior, and although I am taking a gap year, I am trying to think ahead as much as possible. I have 3 birds: a gcc, a bebe parrot, and a goffins cockatoo. Luckily, my G2 is just as (or more) bonded to my father, so leaving her is no problem. I'll miss her like crazy, but...

    Birds are so much more complex than I could have ever imagined. They are so varied in their behavior that I feel like every week I am reintroducing myself to them... Charlie and Emma are at it again. A completely new pair of birds. Ever since the nest has been removed and the aggression has...

    Considering rehoming Tango

    This is crazy to think about but lately I can't help it. I have these lurking thoughts that Tango is the cause of my anger problems. I have never been an angry person, but a couple of months after I got him I started developing anger issues. It started really small. At first it was just...

    Does anyone know what this canary noise means?

    My canary has been making this noise for exactly a year now but only at night and mornings when he would wake up. Someone told me the noise is teeth grinding. However, he is molting right now and making this noise all day. Idk if it's because of the stress from the molt. He is eating and...

    sun conures: the yellowest things that aren't bananas

    last night I was looking at research over Sun Conure noises because I was just curious. supposedly they're REALLY loud but either I got lucky or I don't notice the sound all too much because I absolutely adore Leaf. it's funny how some people are saying they're too loud for them while other's...

    Lovebirds in apartment?

    Hello! I am going through a mad research stage right now! That's the reason I haven't been posting for a long time: lots to do- no time at all! Sigh. :meh: The main concerns are these: the bird must be cockatiel-size or smaller, and quiet enough for an apt! I would like a hookbill rather than a...
