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" />

BE2Cassie- There's another one he does that cracks me up. It comes along with multiple flips on his comfy perch. It sort of sounds like a car engine that won't start. Like when people keep trying it over and over. It's really a bad explanation. I wish you could hear it. It's like high pitch then low, high pitch then low. Oh, and he sometimes makes the same sound while his beak is wrapped around a perch. He's really showing off. Crest up, of course. I hope to get that on film some time.

I want to add a question to anyone who looked at my videos. Does this sound like other people's toos? Many on another board said that their toos never made sounds like this. They joked that they didn't want their birds to hear it. The other toos were hand raised, and mine is wild caught. I wonder if this difference would cause different calls. You guys would know, if anyone would know.

I had no idea when I posted this question, that there would be such a variety of Too screams.
Great descriptions and great videos too.
I wish that I had a camera with audio so that you could here Coco. All the ones I've heard here are actually quite pleasant in comparrison(beleive it or not).
A cars squeeky brakes is a pretty good description of the sound that he makes. (only he's much louder and keeps going and going....) :rolleyes:

Birdmom your right...That is quiet compared to when Bailey gets wound up too. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

It could be a natural call that captives don't have.I really don't know because I have never met a wild caught yet.

My husband and I think some of our U2's screams sound like a combo of high shrieking Godzilla scream and Terradactyl/dinosaur(sure I spelled that wrong) scream....We try to ignore her as best we can but sometimes you just want to look and go WTH was THAT all about?!?!?!? Esp. when there appears to be no apparent reason... confused wink (And I will vouch for the ear ringing....oh boy....) What makes it worse I think is we took the carpeting out of the house and have vaulted ceilings in the main room where we and the birds are....Holy cow..... wink

Bill has a 'temper tantrum" scream that peels the skull from the brain. It's a combination of of a "teakettle' and an ambulance going through an intersection and an air raid siren. However, if you ignore it long enough, apparently he'll start clucking like a chicken to get your attention "buk buk buk buk buKAW!" It's like living with a flock!!!

Bokka doesnt scream...

He makes a variety of noises, but doesnt scream.

His contact call is more of a "Hello" and sometimes a "caw caw" type thing, but the only time he EVER screamed, and I KNEW it was an upset screaming, was when he was around OTHER birds who actually screamed, like my neighbors M2's. They would SCREAM AT Bokka and Bokka would scream back and.. yikes. It distressed me to see him so upset.

Males...

The two M2's were males and I believe they were screaming challenge with Bokka, as thats how Bokka took it (flared up like never seen before and lowered wings, flared tail, and screaming!!) :p

Other than that he is not a screamer, never been around those other birds AGAIN, NOOOO MORE for Bokka. lol.

He is, all in all, a very quiet bird.

All his noises he makes doesn not bother me. As his reular noises and cockatoo doings is normal.

Perhaps I just treat him right laugh laugh laugh So he has no complaints wink laugh

Oh and the only time Bokka contact calls me none stop (when he does start contact calling I mean) is when I leave the room, and Bokka is in his cage. If he is ontop of his cage. He'll contact call a couple times, I'll contact call him back and he is down his cage off looking for me laugh <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

Bokka's mom- Thanks for saying beautiful Too. Guess what my Too's name is?...
WhiteBOY! His eyes are as black as coal. I really think he was DNA tested a long time ago by his previous person. He had a female mate for a while too.
Rocco's dad- You should have seen Whiteboy when I played Rocco's call. Crest went up. Wings went up! He was in his cage and did not hesitate to JUMP to his porch to face the opponent. I want you to know that when he hears other Too sounds he gets interested, but this was the most serious reaction I've ever seen from him.

Tielmama, the reason I ask is, because when breeder breed their birds and get babies, they put the band on the left foot if its a female and on the right if male they also do this with wild caught birds, but the band will be opened. And.. before I even noticed the band, I heard your TOOS scream and it sounds very feminine. LOL laugh

How old is your WhiteBoy?

Some females just wont get the red eyes, although most of the female si have seen with re eyes are very hormonal, or are jsut getting to sexual maturity and hormones are comming. But I do know some females that have brown eyes.

My Bokka doesnt sound feminine.. for the most part when he lets out some vocalizing, but I am told by most he looks very feminine (why my saying goes " Male Umbrella cockatoos are more girly than the females, LOL") laugh

Also, I am not sure about female toos, as I do not have them, only been around them.

Bokka is always up for a challenge when he DOES here a male M2 screams. Gosh I was so frightened to hear Bokka SCREAM when I was at Zj's house in Sultan, her male M2's scream A LOT, and Bokka is a VERY QUIET boy. He really is. I dont know why, and he only gets loud as the family gets loud(large family) and for the most part QUIET!

But when I was at my friends, with Bokka. He would flap his wings and let off the horriblest scremaing I have ever heard. The loudest I have ever heard too out of a cockatoo. LOL. I think for the most part it was a distress/aggression type call. Bokka was out of his terrortory and I think he was quite distressed when he screamed. He would scream up to 15 minutes every hour or so. And would not stop no matter how comforting I was being to him (He was on my shoulder and I kept trying to cuddle him to calm him and he would not have none of that, he wanted to be on my shoulder and SCREAM) Most frightening thing I heard :*( I want to tape it someaday. i do believe it wa mainly stress screaming with *some* aggression it his scream.
eek eek eek

Bokka's mom- Wow! You really have me wondering now. Whiteboy was with his last person for 16 years, and with a person before that, for an unknown amount of time. I've only had him for 7 months. He has an open band with letters that I've been told mean he came through a California import station. His eyes are very black, even when you look at them outside. What a funny name for a girl! (funny name anyway) I didn't name him. I'm going to email his last person to see if he was DNA tested.

Bokka's mom- I guess Whiteboy is just a girlyman. I emailed the guy who gave him to me. He was DNA tested male. He tried to be delicate when he told me that when Whiteboy had an Umbrella girlfriend, there was NO DOUBT which one was the male.

TielMama my U2 Snowy does both of those, and the flapping one she does one my arm upside-down. It seems Snowy does most of the ones mentioned.

The most annoying is her morning "EEEEEE"'S if I forget to cover her at night (sometime between 5:30 and 7). These are high pitched sqweels. (I really don't what different a white sheet makes.)


Proud to be deemed worthy of my U2's flock

Love this topic, First time KiwiU2 screamed it was in my ear, brain still feels like jello. She witnessed the grandbaby getting attention from crying so now we are often treated to that (minus grandbaby). Just recently she witnessed the 3 year old grand child having a temper tantrum, now we get to periodically relive that experience. When she really needs to be a cockatoo, the screamy flappy stuff, we let her do it. She doesn't do it often. The last time she needed to vent was on the pontoon boat. Our neighbors remarked, "was that Kiwi we heard screaming on the lake last night? I guess the noise carried pretty well over 3,000 acres of water. Increased the audience potential.

My husband and I think some of our U2's screams sound like a combo of high shrieking Godzilla scream and Terradactyl/dinosaur(sure I spelled that wrong) scream....
That sounds a lot like Sunny. He has a variety of LOUD ones, but my personal least favorite is a repeated, high decibel, "EE er RIP!! EE er RIP!!" that I can actually FEEL bouncing on my eardrums. eek
