Scarlett Chested Parakeet- strange calls


I aquired a male scarlett chested parakeet about a year ago, his name is Tikoe, when I got him he was roughly 2 years of age and had been housed outside with a couple of Bourkes and a female scarlett chested parakeet. He did not get a long very well with the female, in fact he was a little bald when I got him. I've noticed he does not have the soft twittering like calls that most scarletts have. In fact he does more squawking than anything, to the tune of McCartney, I might add . My little bird seems to really like his soft rock.

At first I assumed maybe since he was housed with Bourkes, that he was imitating them, this morning he began making a cawing sound- almost crow like. There does not appear to be anything physially wrong with him, he has been to the vet recently, clean bill of health, he seems happy, he plays. I should mention he was housed with our beloved cockatiel, Rocko, up until he recently passed away at the age 15.

I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this or knows why he is doing this? I'm fine with it, just want to make sure he is ok.

Sorry I can't help but welcome.
I think Bobioden might have had a scarlet chested?
