    Cockatiel screams when he hears himself in videos

    My cockatiel Apollo screams and paces back and forth around the cage when I play back videos of himself chirping or singing. He also does the same thing when he hears other birds screaming, but not when its chirping and singing. Does he think it's another bird intruding his home? Why does he scream? Should I stop playing those videos around him?

    He most probably thinks it is a real bird, and is flock calling the bird in the video! In my view, it probably would be best to not play the videos over and over. Once in awhile would be OK!
