I have read a huge load of posts about Toos and their screaming.
My U2 does more than his share of screaming as well, but I'm not sure if his screams are a 'normal' Too scream. I have heard the yells of Toos in pet stores etc., and the closest comparison I would say is a "CAW" type sound.
Mine, actually, sounds a lot like........? Does anyone remember that movie where Darryl Hannah played a mermaid and she made this very high pitched "EEEEE""EEEEEE". eek
Well, that's how my Too sounds. Talk about grating on your nerves!!
Do all U2s do this. I would welcome the "CAWWW" "CAWWW" noise over this any day.

Here's Rocco. He did that right in my ear. My ear was sore for a few days. Just right-click the link and select "save target as" to save it.

CM, you just described the screetch our 'tiel makes! Over, and over, and over, etc. She could do voice overs for that movie <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> ! I agree, Cassie's loud, cawing shriek is nowhere near as grating. I can hear our 'tiel's screaming 3 blocks from our house when we walk to the park. He is getting better, but when I'm working in the kitchen he does it constantly, I now have my daughter take him to her room or his playground before I start supper, so I can have a little peace.

Cassie (U2) has a very loud, short scream that reminds me a little of a heavy metal door squeaking that she will keep repeating for maybe 5 minutes. She has another really loud, longer scream that is more like the CAWWWWWWWWWWW! you described. All her other sounds are a pretty reasonable volume.

Chew's is more like a child screaming then a bird screaming. IT's crazy he siounds like he's crying. IT's the hardest thing for me not to go and take him out of his cage and comfort him.
After he is done though I go right away and take him out and tell him what a good boy he is. For not screaming

This is a great post! Cassie does the normal 2 squawk sounds just like Rocco, but she also has a few others. One is her devil scream very low pitched raspy and very long and drawn out. She will do this when playing or if she's mad. And heaven help you if you laugh at her when she's doing this. She get pissed and will go into full display! Her other is very high pitched ear splitting when she thinks someone has just come home and she is calling to them. Ted Nuggent has nothing on this scream! LOL Nancy

Not sure how to describe the various yells and calls of ours, the LSC2's are loud and annoying, but certainly no where near the volume and variety of our M2.

Although I do have one thing to add, the movements that accompany the yells indicate just how much potential ear damage is on the way.

Body hunched over, beak down and slight lifting of the wing over and over indicateds a "phweeeet phweet" call similar to a FOX40 NFL whistle, sure it's loud, but not the loudest.

Wings spread full out, chest back, that indicates what is on the way will sterilize frogs at a hundred paces.

As above, but add the big "Stompy foot action" with the foot being held in the air, or accompanied by combining this with a quick back and forth pacing on the perch, and you are in trouble, this one will peal the paint off the walls. It is like having a fire engine in your family room, unbelieveable! eek

Best part is that the my twins know and understand this as well as we do, and are able to give us some warning if we are out of sight. Dad! "Jazzy is doing her stompy foot" will send me looking for earplugs in a hurry!!

Good description of an M2, 3toos! Our M2 has a whole bunch of screams and shrieks, depending on whether he is mad or just blowing off steam. He also has a small tweeting sound when he wants attention. If I don't give him the attention right away it escalates. His most common scream sounds much like a woman screaming. I've had contests with him (when nobody else is home) and he can scream louder than I can.

When he gets into a dispute with the macaw or the macaw takes a toy away from him, his scream gets so loud it's like his voice is breaking.

We have a saying around here: When Gilligan ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!

Walter. That is a welcome noise around here. LOL
Nowhere near as grating as Coco.
Cassie's 'metal door squeak' sounds like it may be a good description. eek
And, yes, it is heard for blocks around!!! And goes on forever!!! Not so easy to ignore.
There is so much that I wish I knew before I became a Too mommy. wink

" Wings spread full out, chest back, that indicates

paces. "

ROFL

Goober can usually be found screaming while clamped
to the side of his cage, wings flapping just as
hard as he can pump them.

On occasion he will surprise me and randomly throw
a yell out. Alas, he will occasionally be perched on
shoulder while doing so. Won't hear squat out of
that ear for some time. . . .

One of these days I'm going to setup the sound
meter next to his cage and see just HOW loud he
really is. . . .

Oh, you don't want to know! I often think I should get earplugs for when I'm in their room cleaning and they're whooping it up.

Ok so NOW I know why the frog population is decreasing in our neighborhood!!! Thanks for clearing that up 3Toos!!

LOL. .this is a great post.

Rosie also has this "tommy-gun" thing she does and it seems to go on forever. Very annoying. It gets old for our B&G in a hurry and you'll hear shooting (Rosie's tommy-gun). . .Neala saying "STOP IT!". . more shooting. ... . Neala saying "STOP IT!" and finally eventually it all ends. God love our neighbors. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

Angelina has a very annoying wail. It will go on forever and drive you crazy. She also has a cry that is very loud, that is identical to a crying baby. In fact a year ago, one of our new neighbors was wondering when I was going to do something about the baby crying constantly. She was shocked to find out I didnt have a baby. The funniest part of Angelina screaming is that the macaw repeatedly yells at her to "stop it"

I fully expect Animal Control to visit after some of Tikki's screams.

Anyone that is hearing her from over the fences would surely think she was being harmed.

But I know her and if they should come out then she would go to the top of her cage, draw a leg up and roll up her feathers and not give a clue as to that was the animal making those sounds.

Heide,

I have to agree with the "tommy gun" thing, our M2 has a sort of twist on it that sounds like a locked up wheel skidding on pavement and then bouncing and screeching to a halt. You really expect to hear a metallic crash at the end of it.

But the best is when almost out of the blue she opens up with a horror movie womans voice scream. It truly sounds terrifiying, and the first few years I expected someone to call the police or break down the door looking for a murder victim.

Thankfully it is not often that she does that one.

The neigbors are rather used to it now, but it sure makes my heart skip a beat still.

Cocosmom, what a great post idea!

Sugar has a lot of different screams and I seriously am losing my hearing in my left ear.I didn't realize it till the kids started commenting on how many times I had to say "HUH".When we first got her a lady stopped my hubby at the hardware store and asked "what kind of animal have you got that makes that horrible noise?"She lives over a block away!We were gone one day and it got dark before we got home and my 11 yr old grandaughter was across the street and could hear Sugar yelling "nite nite,good nite nite".This was with the doors and windows closed.They are really hard to ignore <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />
