"Beak-Banging
A bird may often hammer his beak on a hard object, or on you. It almost looks like a pecking motion. This is beak-banging, and it is a common behavior for male cockatiels. Like the bat bird, it is a gesture of property ownership. Your bird may be saying "Whatever I'm hammering on is mine!" However, while the Bat Bird is seen in both male and female parrot, beak banging is a predominantly male behavior."


So far, Dooby owns a DVD, the telephone, his perch, a small part of my computer desk and my mug!:D:D

LOL!!! I love the beak banging, it's adorable. Sadly Bailee doesn't do it, i've seen the behaviour when i've bird sat Banjo when his owners are away. It's so funny.

Dooby sure has a lot of property... :p ;)

:D:D Ok, I believe he's a boy. He's been a little devil boy today though, got the grumps and he's bitten me loads, he's moulting pretty bad though, so of course I forgive him. The funny thing is when I say to him "No, Dooby, that's naughty!" he runs up to get under my chin for a cuddle as though to say "I'm sorry, mum!" LOL!!

Oh well, it sounds like Dooby is normal then. LOL.

Bea: Don't tempt me, I could bird nap Bailee in a heartbeat, he's such a little darling and I just don't believe he could possibly be grumpy!!;)

Laurago: Yes...I believe!!! He's ALL boy! Oh I know the look you mean, the one that melts your heart and you instantly forgive, ready for the next painful experience. LOL.
