What noises does your bird react to?

What noises that you make does your bird react to?

Russ reacts to clicking and that pursed lip suck noise (ya know?) (most times! as I tried it just now and the lazy sod just sat there preening herself, didn't even look at me!), but she REALLY reacts when I slap my leg.

She'll pop out of her cage/climb down it and be like "wah? me? you're talking to me and want me to fly over? me?"

INSTANT attention.
Yup. That stopped her preening hahaha.

My Sun Conure, Scooter only responds to a few noises... The first time I ever held him, I don't know why, I clicked my tongue at him and he immediately nodded his head very enthusiastically. 5 years later he still does it. I used it to train him to nod when he wants food.. because I ask him "you want some?" and he nods.

He has never, sadly, responded to music until just last weekend I had a friend over who was going through her music. She had "You are my sunshine" on her playlist and when it started, Scooter perked up and did a slow dance to it with his head. It was hilarious. I've had him all this time and this is the first song he responds to. It was great. He's such a sweety.

That's so funny!

I just made sucky noise and clicked at Russ and she stopped chirping quietly, turned around and started squawking at me hahaha.

Haha! When I saw the title of this post, I knew what I was going to put, but I wasn't sure how to put it. It's what you called it, that "pursed lip suck noise." My birds go completely silent when I do it and stare at me. It's really funny!

I can tell. It's still very humorous.

I have no idea if she already had the habit, but as soon as we had KRYKKYT, she immediately responded to my tongue clicks with her own, and she responds exactly the same to my gf's "kissy" sound -- I don't think she differentiates between the two.

As far as music, it's the same as with the clicking -- either a click or a tune from us or on TV means it's IMMEDIATELY time for a dance. Head bobbing up and down is simple happy-dance, while side-to-side swaying is less common and seems to reflect more of a slow-dancing mood.

Oh -- the other thing she's been responding to is the budgies' voices. Unfortunately, the higher she tries to squawk in imitation of their singing, the more she sounds like a cat being put through a meat-grinder! We thought she was dying for awhile there, as every day her calls got a little higher and more pathetic, until we finally recognized her attempt at "trilling" and the way she would stare at the keets and listen for their responses.

UPDATE: KRYKKYT now differentiates between tongue clicking (single, sharp and loud, accompanied by bobbing dance) and smoochies (three rapid, wetter-sounding kisses, usually pressing her beak to our lips).

Either one is nice!

If I get real close to Minnie, and I say something like her name or "hello" she shakes her head real quickly. Like every time! It's weird. I might get it on video.

Our finches never make a single sound, oddly enough. And sad to say, we're going to have to give them all up -- all 10,000 or so of them. Luckily for them, they already live on the OUTSIDE of our birdroom, but the budgies* inside are no doubt going to miss sharing lunch with them from inside the window.

But that's how stupid "neighborhood associations" and jerks like that are -- the condo officials here have just announced that we can ONLY feed wild birds via the patio, and so we have to shut down our birdroom window feeding operation or pay a big fine!

*(The conure really hasn't ever paid much attention to the window feeding activities)

My cockatiel Cheeky loves it when I brush my teeth He can be in a different room, and when he hears the 'teeth brushing noise' coming from the bathroom he starts making kiss noises and does his little heart wings and wolf whistles. It's hilarious, and very very strange.

I have shpeshal birds!
