    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...

    Sun Conure training

    I'd like to start this thread by saying my sunny is a sweet girl who gets along well with her owner (me) and the other member in the household, and will happily relax with home visitors as long as she is with her owner. I feed her well, she has plenty of toys, and a nice, large cage with room...

    Flock Calling/Screaming

    Hey guys, It's been a long time. Mogli is doing well in terms of health. He's a good boy, very affectionate and eating well, however he flock calls constantly when I am not holding him or sitting in front of him and I'm not sure what to do about it. He starts flock calling from the moment he...

    Any suggestions on aviary acclimation? Cockatoo hates his aviary.

    I've built a beautiful aviary for Corey, my rescued bare-eyed cockatoo. It's stuffed full of wood and corks and toys and ropes and branches and puzzles and other fun things. It's screened from any scary sights. Right now, the weather is gorgeous. As we will be undergoing a kitchen remodelling...

    Picasso won't stop 'nail-gunning'

    So, quick backstory: When Picasso was new to our home (about 2 months old) they were doing construction on the apartment above ours. Consequently one of the very first sounds she learned to mimick was a high powered nail gun. Well, fast forward a couple of years and she's driving us nuts. she...

    So about screaming...

    I'm a bit curious about this, because what I've read some people say has been the complete opposite of what I've done... So discussion time , perhaps? ;) First of all, I guess, what exactly constitutes 'problem' screaming from normal screaming? Where is the line made? Is this dependent on the...

    Having Trouble

    Hey there everyone! I've been having some trouble training my male cockatiel. A little backstory: I got my first tiel named Baby just a little while ago (back in July 2015) from a friend at work. He said she was too loud and he didn't want to put up with it anymore. I had researched a ton on...

    This bird drives me insane.

    Huxley used to be out of his cage ALL the time.. (Except for when I wasn't home, and when it was time for bed) When I first got him, I had a mirror in his cage, he became very obssesed with it and agressive when anyone came near. I took it out and ever since he has been the sweetest bird. He...

    The scream of the aratinga conure

    Okay. I don't have a conure of the aratinga variety. I do have a green cheek who is shockingly quiet even for his species, which is great for living in an appartment. At the same, I hoped he would be a bit loud because it's just too quiet here. Over the last few months I have found myself...

    How Small Changes Can Have Big Impacts

    (For accompanying photos, please see the original post on my blog!) It's frustrating and embarrassing to admit, but the reason I posted recently about the idea of rehoming is because that topic has been discussed at our home a lot in the past few months. However, I don't give up easily and I...
