Has anyone here worked with blue and golds regularly? Have one?
What is their noise level/vocalization pattern like? Are they screams (like cockatoos)? How do they compare with sun conures? (I already have one, so we're already "in trouble" for whatever level of noise he makes...lol.)
This is more a curiosity question, but it has a practical thrust. I just became aware of a rescue situation through one of the listservs I'm on (the bird is fine, but the distraught owner must give him up). I emailed back, more in support than anything else--i.e. "if there is something we can do, let us know." The man is in the region, so I figure it can't hurt for him to have contact names.
Unfortunately, I doubt that we could offer what is probably needed (a permanent home for the bird). We rent. It's a townhome, so no upstairs or downstairs neighbors, but there are next door neighbors. Given that, I assume that any macaw is simply too noisy. At the same time, I'd be interested to hear that those "in the know" say. I've held 'em, but never lived with 'em!
