The thing i learned today!
When you hold a screaming quakers beak shut they can still scream just as loud!!! ;)

I have an incredible trusting relationship with Phoebe. So while she was sitting on the back of my chair right at my ear screaming, I reached over and shut her beak, and held shut .
I'm laughing because she basically said this changes nothing! And continued to ear spitting scream . ;)
So I learned something! Gave her a kiss and moved her.

Why the screaming you ask? She was just enjoying her ability to make noise

Yes. Their screaming organ, the syrinx, is right at the junction of their bronchii. So holding the beak shut means nothing for screaming.

I recall Lucy could talk with her beak full but it wasn’t as clear. I would assume that’s because the sounds of words are shaped by the tongue. So maybe they couldn’t talk as well with beak held shut?

My poor tolerant birds. They put up with so much!
