Do you leave the radio on for your birds?

Does anyone leave the radio on for their bird when they leave the bird home alone? I sometimes turn it on and he doesn't seem to care, most the time someone is home and the t.v is on but for the days when he's home alone does this make them feel less lonely?

I have loads of birds so they all entertain each other. But when I used to breed budgies and cockatiels back when I was very young I used to leave the radio on all day long for them all

I leave the radio on for Rocky all day, it tends to only get turned off at bed time and tea time though I will sometimes turn it off for training.

He loves listening to the radio and joins in if it is a song he likes lol. He loves any noise though, washing machine, hoover etc etc.

I leave the radio on otherwise Kiwi will scream. Also, if he does screech when the radio is on, the radio drownds out the noise for the neighbors

i would leave the radio on if he is your only bird. in the wild there are always sounds and when it is quiet that means there is danger of somesort. so the radio is good
