Haha it just goes to show you how this is all relative. It really depends on the bird and the person taking care of the bird. I love cockatiels, except for there voices. It makes my ears bleed. The sound of a cockatiel drives me nuts.

The last time I was at the bird store there was this one cockatiel that was sounding off. I was there only for about 20-30 minutes and it's was relentless. No offense to those who own them, but no way could I ever. Same goes with lovebirds and conures.
So true! I love my cockatiel, but he's easily my loudest bird. I can't stand the pitch and frequency of his calls. Drives me nuts!

Re: Choosing my first parrot

Started to research the poicephalus parrots and definetly liking them a lot. Starting to think that a Senegal might be the right bird for me. So been researching them like crazy. Watching every YouTube video. Glad I didnt jump into anything just yet. Won't buy a bird till sept when I get back from a two week vac.
