muttonchop, who is a tiel no older than 7 months (but more like 6, i think) has started furiously pacing around whistling tons of random whistles nonstop for 2-3 minutes at a time. it's like he's "talking" to himself in a determined crazy way, but with whistles.
"woo-oo. woo. woo-woo" over and over!
all the whistles are variations of the wolf whistle, the one we have been working on since i got him at the end of april.
so i think we have a breakthrough! funnily enough, he prefers to walk away from me (so he can be "alone") to practice. and he esp loves to pace windowsills and do this.
does it start this way? i've been talking to him all the time & hoping he'll talk soon, too...
