Noisy Birds!

All the birds are screaming their heads off everyday, even the tiny budgies are belting it out! it's doing me nuts!

Could it be because of the bright summer day, warm weather? What do you think is going on with my fids? They're all 1 to 2 years old - could it also be hormonal?

Hormones is definitely one thing but my conures right now are going NUTS!!! I think it's their morning and evening screams as well as their hormones

With the Budgies I think they just like to make noise, lol. I know Lemon did when I had him because he was male; he liked to scream and chatter away to himself all day.

I think it was Nanay that said green mutation quakers can scream REALLY LOUD but they're best talker though.

I have been trying to get them all to have a bath everyday, they're only quiet when they're wet.

Never mind, it's all fun I suppose- can't say my life is quiet and boring.

My quaker screams same squawk note everytime, I wish he would change the tune sometimes to make it more interesting; drives me nuts SQUAWK! SQUAWK!

With the senegal at least he changes his tune sometimes, some of the sounds can be very pleasant to the ears and some are really funny, there are a few annoying notes too though.

I used to have this problem a lot too until I got the bird onto their routine of going to bed and getting up in the morning. Starling right now is calling for her friends even though they are right beside her, and answer her. It must be hormonal from the seasons...

the senegal is the same. He'll be quiet for a while and then in the morning and evening it will be SQUEAK! WOO WOO! SQUEAK! He really does sound like a squeaky toy, it's cute! Only problem is parents won't tolerate the noise for long.

The senegal I have if I counted up the different sounds that he makes, they must be close to a hundred different sounds.

You should try teach your senegal to wolf whistle- they learn quite quick. I like it when my senegal sees me and he wolf whistles, it's quite funny .

It is funny when he does it and then when you copy him he will do it even louder
