Previously I was looking for "talking" Sun Conures, and my conclusion was, they don't talk. They can mimic the cadence of human speech, but haven't heard any Sun conure talking clearly enough that a non-parrot could understand. But maybe the GCCs are just superior in this area?
Thanks Aratingettar for that video.

Pico says 2 things from that video, Gimme a kiss, and Come Here.
Not to brag, but Pico's pronunciation is much more clear.
I'd love to post a video, but he talks when HE wants to so I'd be recording him for hours waiting for him to talk.
I suspect the camera would disturb him into silence.
Also, since I'm a privacy freak, I don't have a Youtube account.
I hear you can be traced if you post videos .... creepy!

Up till a year ago 2 dogs lived here.
Pico said their names several times a day, but only when he was in the same room as the dogs.
Since the dogs moved out he hasn't said their names once.
I find this amazing because it demonstrates he's not just 'parroting' what he hears.
He associated, understood, used, and stopped using the names in proper context.

I think he says other things, but here are the things I can now recall that he says:
Gimme a kisssss
Beebee
Come here
Poop (In context, when I put him back onto a perch to poop. Right when he poops he's allowed back onto my shoulder)
Stop It!!!!! ... (Again, in context of something he wants me to stop.)
That kissing sound we make with our lips ... often 3 times right after saying, "Gimme a kissss".
Ta-dah voice very scratchy, not always clear. Except for No, and she loved to tell me no

Re: Are there some "words" common to all conures?

I've never heard Yoda say BeeBee or Gimme a Kiss. But he does talk to us.

Yoda's favorite thing to say is "Hi Yoda!" which he says about every 30 seconds. To him it means "Pay attention to me!!!!".

In addition, he laughs a LOT(sounding a lot like my husband's laugh). He laughs when he hears us laugh, he also laughs when he's performing and trying to get us to laugh. The best part is that he often laughs when one of us says or does something funny even before WE laugh, as if he knows something funny happened. He's such a clown.

He says I love you which most of the time sounds like "Pew Pew", however sometimes he enunciates fully into "I love you".

My favorite thing is the little kissing sounds he makes as he kisses me or I kiss him, it always becomes a little kissy fight to see who can land the most kisses on the other.

I've heard him say Good Morning, but not recently. And he says Fire in the Hole which is his pooping command.

Re: Are there some "words" common to all conures?

I know that "please" and "thank you" are not words known to any conure vocabulary. But "gimme" definitely is.

Re: Are there some "words" common to all conures?

kissy (gives kiss, demands kiss)

come on (come get me, come on lets go together, also step up)

come here (come get me)

what're you doin? (curiosity both ways)

at 6pm "chirp! chirp! chirp!........" (i'm tired it's time for seepy) {not sleepy}

*****************************

clark understands.....

seepy time? (she gives accention or negation in conure....[chirp or grrrnt]}

no {stop}

no bite {no bite}

easy, softer {chill out on the beak}

go poop {poop commence} {usually over sink or on shower rail}

good girl or boy {good bird}

bath time? {want a bath?}

********************************

Clark (and Zod) have yet to grasp...


MINE

MY FOOD

NO MY FOOD I DIDN'T EAT YOUR FOOD!!!! EAT YOUR OWN FOOD!

GO PLAY WITHOUT ME

Go AWAY

Re: Are there some "words" common to all conures?

My Golden Conure Muffin is only six months old but he does already say "Watcha Doing!" and he makes kissing noises and he has a whole bunch of stuff that is not quite clear enough to me to interpret. I leave the television on often for him which I have always done for all of the many birds I have had over the years. My Macaws used to say "This is CNN!"

And then you can get the Rival to say "that's why you're so appealing!"

Re: Are there some "words" common to all conures?

Lemon says "step up" and he laughs when you laugh. He says a long high pitched "hi", but usually when he sees water so I think that's his word for water. He also says a cute "mmmmmm" whenever you give him something yummy to eat. He used to make kissing noises and imitate clicking noises when he was younger, but he seems to have abandoned that.

He also has a special tweet he uses when he's trying to call me over. That tweet is like my name to him, I guess When his sun screeches don't work, he switches to tweet
