Lol that would make sense, the growling, if my dog ever growled! He hisses at first, but as soon as you make contact (ex, petting him) he starts gurgling! Aww, my budgie does the gibberish mumbling too, with kisses every so often, it's cuteWow I've never heard of that. Maybe he's trying to growl like your dog? Lol. Noki does this hissing thing when she's angry, but I think that's pretty normal. Sometimes when she's in a good mood, she mumbles to herself in gibberish.
Well, I'm glad he's not doing something completely unheard of! Jester does it when he's unhappy?I think I know what noise you are talking about - if it's what I'm thinking then it is Jester's favorite noise. He's getting better and not doing it as much
It is somewhat static-y...but squeaky and gurgly? Maybe its his take on it, lol!When cockatiels are unhappy they'll often make a sound that many describe as a "static" noise (like static on a radio). Does this sound like your bird's sound?
Kirby does this! And it's silent right? Also I notice it's as if he's rubbing his beak together but there's not really any sound. Initially I did think he was eating something but then I realized he was just moving his beak.mine open and closes her mouth like shes chewing really fast or something, anyone elses do anything like that??
