Ok, I got the title Bella-Gram from a book I just finished reading.
Bella is doing very well. She is letting some of her feathers grow back in. Still learning new words and phrases.

I got this video of her talking and making noises. I am afraid am not good at video editing and the first part of the video was doubled. I like the way she lifts up her foot making a fist while she is talking.

Bella does not have a specific contact call. What she does do is make this noise that's kind of like a donk donk. She makes this noise when you walk up to her cage and say hi to her. Because I can not duplicate the noise she makes I just say donk donk to her. Now she is repeating me repeating her. She also says one of her favorite made up words "sweegul" a contraction of sweet girl.

This second video I tried to show how Bella goes on alert when I approach her cupboard. It's not easy to see but her feathers go from slicked down to standing at attention.

Enzo stop in her tacks when she heard your first video, she didnt move once...
Your second video, its so hard to tell if she is that is a happy 'fluff' or a warning 'fluff', but based on her reaction to your hand id say she is happy there. Try and avoid her access to the cupboard though, nesting isnt good..
