    First Time Bird Owner

    Hi all! I'm a first time bird owner with a hand-tame lutino cockatiel called Bambino, coming up to 6 months old. He bonded with me really quickly and now loves my partner too. We decided not to have him clipped and he's really good at flying now, he can be a bit mischievous but he's got a...

    My rescue screams ....a lot

    Hi All, I'm new to this but hoping for a bit of help....without judgment please. I have adopted a Goffin Cockatoo named June. She is absolutely amazing and beautiful and such a sweet sweet bird. She kisses and says hello and up up. I have recently taught her (almost) to say Love you. When...

    First Umbrella Cockatoo

    So today I got an Umbrella Cockatoo, (unsure of dna sex, I think it’s male,) and the bird is absolutely the sweetest when it’s in the cage, and when it’s out and on me. If it’s on the floor completely different ball game. But my biggest issue is that, if I leave the room, he screams, I turned...

    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...

    Screaming after move

    Hi everyone, So I just moved to an apartment and my green cheek is acting very out of character. To be fair we did JUST move in-he spent his first night here yesterday, but his behavior is just so weird. He’s eating like a chunk (normal) and busying himself on the top of his cage (also...

    Eclectus Screaming at 6 months

    Hey everyone, I am relatively new to the Ekkie world. I am the proud owner of a 6 month old eclectus boy named Benji. I got him when he was just over 4 months. He was super quiet for 2 weeks, then in the last month and a half every time he sees me he caws really loudly. It will only start if he...

    Need some help

    Hello guys. Let me introduce my birds. I have a 1-year old female cinnamon cockatiel and I recently got a (I'm guessing) 5-month old male whiteface pied cockatiel. I'm having problems with both birds. The female and the male get along fine for the most part. However I only see the female...

    Boyfriend’s Meyers parrot is driving me insane.

    This is quite long and ranty, so I apologize. I’m just at my wit’s end here. His name is Fred and my boyfriend thinks he’s about 7 or 8 (got him from a pet store about 5 or 6 years ago so he’s not completely sure). My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half, and we haven’t...

    Sudden Change of Behavior in Conure

    Hi everyone, So I've had my maroon bellied conure (Cypress) for 3 years now (got him when he was 6 mo). He's always been pretty talkative, but has never really been much of a screamer. Situation: After moving into a new apartment 4 months ago, he was still behaving very well. I have two...

    Cockatiel screaming

    Hi there! I am a first time bird owner and decided on a cockatiel. I did get him from a pet store so he was not handled much when he was small. He warmed up to me in about a week and now every time I let him out he flys up to my shoulder. My problem is not with his chirping, I actually...

    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...

    The mango meister has joined in the screech-fest

    Though Kraz and Aurélie are both first-rate screamers and live to shriek at each other across the hallway, Taco and Kamara have always been very quiet and well-mannered. Of course they always join in the Dawn Chorus and they like to chat, but their hollers are few and far between. But Taco has...

    Video Tiel screaming

    I know I've done a thread on this recently but I filmed the guy and will put it here. Apologies if I shouldn't post this many threads and should just continue old ones I'm just worried I might be doing something wrong as a new bird owner, I want to make sure Sol has as good a life as I can make it.

    New Cockatiel suddenly starts singing/screaming

    I don't know if it's bad or good, but just in case it's bad I want to check here. The title says it all, he's only been here a few days would barely chirp and now he's just going. I'll whistle he'll stop for a second and then he'll keep going

    Eddie won't stop screaming unless I'm looking directly at him/in his direction

    This has just started happening recently and I'm not sure why. Normally, Eddie has little screaming fits throughout the day and I'm used to that, but recently he just screams and screams and screams until I'm looking at him/in his direction. The second I'm looking at him, he just gets completely...

I feed her well, she has plenty of toys, and a nice, large cage with room...
