    What noises do your budgies like?

    Hey,

    I'm just sitting here typing up some work on the computer and i have noticed that my budgie, Donkey, loves the noise of the keyboard as I'm typing. Whenever i pause typing he stops singing, then when i start again he starts singing! Its so cute!

    As well as tying I'm listening to music, his favorite songs are Millionaire by kelis/andre 3000 and Obviously by McFly!

    Just wondering what other noises budgies particulaly like or whether all budgies just like different sounds! Does anyone elses budgies have weird things they like the sound of??

    If our budgies can hear me typing, they try to mimic the noise from the keyboard. When I am cooking in the kitchen if I am moving a spoon or spatula around in a certain rhythm and they hear it, they try to copy the rhythm. If we are being to loud, they talk louder trying to be the loudest. If you make kissing noises to them, they make them right back and to one another because we've done it to them so much. And we have one Budgie Whisperer at bedtime. When the cover is on and he's supposed to be quiet, he sits in there and whispers to the others until his BirdMommy tells him he has to go to sleep.

    How cute - a budgie whisperer ! When mine are covered up at night all I hear is a little bickering because someone is sitting too close to someone else (you know-like "MOM, he's touching me!!" LOL) Mine like the piano, and the sound of running water and the crinkling noise the bags with the vegetables make because they know dinner or snack is coming then.

    Rainbow is beautiful.
    Rhema I relate to the louder you talk the louder they get. My husband will turn up the TV so he can hear it over them. I tell him they are just going to get louder. they do and he turns it off and retreats to the family room. He come to talk to me in my office where the birds are during the day. He starts to talk and that is their signal to start up. He talks louder and they talk louder. Now we just laugh about it and go to another room.
    My birds love the door bell as they fly to the tree by the door waiting to see who it is. Bailey even has picked up on when the garage door opens and fly's around waiting to see who comes in the back door. They don't like hearing the kids cry or any loud yelling, it makes them squawk.

    My guys love the radio. As soon as the radio goes on every morning (I leave it on for them all day), they become animated and start chirping and dancing.

    Kickstand really likes punk music, I bet he thinks he's such a little rebel,

    Other than that, He loves to chatter away whenever I'm watching a movie/playing video games
    R.I.P. Buddy, my pretty little bird. Kickstand and I will miss you...

    Ayame and Kiwi both like the same sounds: Water running, the vaccum, and sometimes our Quaker chittering to himself. X3

    [color-darkred]I find it interesting that budgies have a preference in music. I find that fascinating. We have one who is love with Shania Twain when he hears her come on the television. He gets really talkative and starts doing all the crazy courting behavior.

    Then our others really like classical music or they like Sarah Kelly, Jaci Velasquez and Amy Grant who I enjoy alot as well. And they go nutty when they hear Nickel Creek. For those of you not familiar with Nickel Creek, they are a bluegrass band. I don't like bluegrass music in it's traditional form - in a modern progressive form it's very nice for listening music or mood music.

    I wanted to mention that today they have been making noises trying to copy me on the keyboard of my computer while I've been here at Tailfeathers. [/color]

    [Whenever I sing softly to them they start to nod off and fall asleep in less than one minute. I have 17 and only the two 3 month old babies seem immune to my voice so far. They also respond to the crows "caw caw" sound when they are calling each other to the large pine I have in the back yard.

    Wow,Joan!! What a great flock you have. My budgies also love most any kind of music, and also the sounds of Disney Channel and cartoons.

    Same here: running water, keyboard clicking, music...especially classical, and the sounds of the city outside.
