why is my bird super vocal all of a sudden?

my bird ( i don’t know the gender for sure ) is usually very quiet, but all of a sudden he is talking a lot like he’s trying to tell me something? also he was bobbing his head like he was vomitting yesterday. should I be concerned? what is this behaviour?


Hi Hudha,

This sounds like hormonal behavior. The head bobbing and regurgitating is something he or she would do for a mate. This type behavior is triggered by warmer temperatures, often when we turn our heaters on for the first time. It is generally a brief phase and then your bird will go back to normal.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
