Interpretations of Budgerigar sounds
Most of the time, the parakeet will let out a single, irregular little squawk. It’s the sound of a happy and active parakeet and means your bird is happily going about its business. The sound allows the bird to constantly reassure itself that all is well, and to bond with its group. It is also a way of knowing the positioning of each one, they call each other when they are not in the same room or when they cannot see each other. It is an innate way of communication in birds, which should not be inhibited because they cannot help making all this noise even to say nothing; kind of like someone who can never remain silent and feels compelled to break it down with monologues.

Chirping is a versatile sound. In addition to the context mentioned earlier, he can use it to get your attention and alert you to the fact that there is no food or water, or other problem with the cage. If the chirp is more serious and insistent, the parakeet is excited. This could be related to the presence of new birds, or the sound of birds (sparrows chirping through an open window, for example). He can also shout to call his companions, to reassure himself of their presence (or yours, if you are his main companion). It can also be a sign of growing alarm, and the chirp will soon give way to screams.
Sounds of excitement or anger are accompanied by an open beak
This is the sound that no one, including the other parakeets in the cage, wants to hear. It means that something is wrong. The bird may have been surprised or frightened, it may have been hurt or sensed the presence of a predator (real or imagined), or it may be angry that you haven’t given it back to it yet. eat. Otherwise, it may be an overflow of hormones that causes him seizures, which will eventually pass. Females in heat tend to be angry and loud.
A reassuring voice will usually help calm him down. If her feathers are tight to the body, she is afraid. Could a blanket over the cage help calm him down while you search for the source of the problem: noises, fumes, other animals, unkind children?
Chattering is a sign of contentment. The noise emitted under this mood is like mumbling. If you teach him to speak, these can turn into recognizable words and phrases. He will be seated while chatting, with the feathers puffed up as a sign of joy and satisfaction.
If your bird is a male, he may also jabber to court and strut in front of females. In the absence of flesh-and-bone objects to direct their attention, the parakeet chatter and Twitter often with its mirrors, thinking to see in its own reflection another bird drinking its every word. These amorous chirps are often accompanied by small nods of the head with erect feathers.
Taming Fearful Parakeets and Budgies (Step by Step)
Parakeets combine their chirps, chirps, chattering, whistles, trills, and other bits of sound that they have appropriated (including from human language) in order to compose a song without melody but pleasant. They often sing together, reassuring each other that all is well and that everyone is safe. A singing parakeet is a very good sign of good mental and physical health.
Singing is a sign of happiness in parakeets
Parakeets have in their vocabulary a shrill cry, like a hissing sound. They use it when their personal space has been invaded and they are on the defensive. You will hear it most often when the birds are in the nesting boxes or in an overcrowded corner of the cage. It is a warning that anything that might bother him does not intimidate him, and that his patience is running out. If you hear this sound often, it may be that there is not enough space in the cage, and birds are not walking on it all the time. In the larger aviaries, scolding cries are a part of the daily life of the parakeets who compete for place and bicker, especially in crowded feeders.
The squeaking of the beak
When perched on their perches and not eating, budgies can make a cracking and squeaking sound with their beaks. It’s the equivalent of a cat’s purring. This indicates fullness, a very deep feeling of satisfaction, they will no doubt fall asleep quickly.
Parakeets have a large repertoire, musical and less musical. They often come across a tweet or babble that they particularly enjoy and will add it to their daily vocabulary. Some birds are inspired by the sounds of their surroundings: telephone, music, other animals, cars in the street, human voices (real or from television). Other sounds seem to come straight out of the bird’s musical imagination.

The sound of animals: parakeets are little musicians
Parakeets, despite their inability to retain a good melody, are very musical little creatures. They will interrupt all activity to listen to the music you are playing, and will often join the song, leaving room for disappointing silence at the end of a song. Your bird will have favorite genres, and even a favorite song, which will give him a lot of excitement when hearing it. Sometimes a piece of music can infuriate your parakeet for no apparent reason. It is, therefore, useful to note his behavior according to the musical tracks played and to avoid provoking him with death metal, opera, or whatever genre he hates.
Parakeet body language
When not vocalizing, body language gives you additional clues about your parakeet’s mood. If its feathers are stuck to its body as if to refine, your parakeet is scared or suspicious of the situation. If she flaps her wings or spreads them far away from her body, that’s another sign of suspicion and that something is wrong. If she is just a little disheveled but without any other sign, then she is happy.
