    my tiel is screaming!

    Hi Everyone! I have a 7 year old male cockatiel. He appears healthy..eating well...feathers are good..
    He has been a singer(Whistler) of songs for almost his whole life...nursery rhymes...partial signing of many other songs.
    Along with that he had taken up screaming like a hawk that lives in our backyard...well even though that was alittle annoying it was cute cause the hawk would answer. But recently he has stopped whistiling songs...and not really doing the hawk...but a loud repetative screech......
    any ideas of what could have happened? He will not even finish the songs anymore when I start them..
    Behaviour? How can I fix?
    Physical maybe??
    any idea would be appreciated...

    Hi,

    I am sorry no one has anwsered you yet.

    Welcome to Tailfeathers.

    Is his cage located by the window?

    Is there a chance that the hawk may have attempted to catch him for food and scared him?

    How much time out of the cage does he get?

    Is he still eatting and drinking his water? Less/same or more then usual?
