Hello, I have a question.

Why do our cockatoos vocalize the loudest when they face AWAY from us? My husband thinks that they are calling the rest of the flock, and therefore have to call louder. Both our M2 and LS2 do this everyday, it is really amusing and we were wondering why.

What do you think? Do yours do that too? It is so funny to see our M2 as she vocalizes during her twice a day ritual, she has so many different sounds and expressions it is always amusing and never boring in our household.

Also today Jazz our M2 spoke very clearly for the first time, she said "hey watcha doing" and "hello hello". Well it was exciting for us anyway.

Any ideas welcome.

I agree with Ivan. Toos are like children. Congratulations on the first words.
These children never grow up and give unconditional love.
As for the two times a day FLOCK call. Sophia and Maxim call out to the flock most. They are not happy when everyone is not in the same room for sleeping. LOL We have to turn out the lights and talk softly till they are done with the beak grinding.
