Unsure what this means? I have had Lolo one week a yellow nape Amazon around 13-20 years. Since monday when I get home or feed her breakfast she will whine like a dog chirp and I think regurgitate her food? What does this mean? She won't always step up while she is going off and I usually let her calm down for a bit before trying to carry her or interact.. just curios if this is normal.. thanks!!

Hmmmm

MC and Secret do their own sounds. They have sounds that I can now identify.... and actions too.

Perhaps this is a happy sound??

Search regurgitate in the bar on the upper right. You'll find a ton of info on the subject. That often is a sign of love.

That's what I'm thinking.. Maybe I can get it on video tomorrow. She sounds just like a dog! Crying and whimpering! She fluffed all up and holds up a foot like she wants up. The starts regurgitating her nuts and such. Then she will show me her toys and go oooh ooo ahhh... She is a character

Secret can do a crow and a yorkie ...... MC can scream like he's dying. I've ran full out for that scream.

I was wondering if there was a noisy dog at one of her last homes that she has learnt to copy. I think @JLcribber may have hit the nail on the head!

They can mimic a baby perfectly so why not a dog? ;)

I have seen that video before, too cute. It would get rather annoying if the bird cried more than the neighbors baby though, lol.

When my BFA was a baby, we lived in an apartment that had two dogs living next door. You could hear them barking and whining through the walls! Sam learned how to bark from them, and he does a perfect dog whine as well. He will often pick up his bells to show us and then proceed to feed them. Sounds just like your Lolo. Such characters these Amazons!

It is a cute and funny video. ....I would not want to have to listen to it for 30 years though...
