Finch Sounds


Hi my zebra finches make really weird noises all the time and one of the sounds resembles to someone drinking through a straw. I want to know the meaning of this.

Thanks


Answer:

Hi,

Finches and other birds make sounds in order to communicate. They may be doing a mate call, an alarm call, or any type of communication between the pair. As to the meaning of each call, I’m not sure if that has ever been researched.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
