I am putting this under training because I am not sure if this is a learned sound or if it is a normal sound...

My tiel makes a whinning sound like puppies make. He does it especially in the morning when I take the cover off. It is like he is saying give me attention. I am not sure if tiels usually make that sound or if he learned it from the puppies in the store he was in.

Young tiels make sounds when they are begging for food but seeing as yours in an older tiel I would say he is probably mimicking sounds he heard at the pet store, male cockatiels are famous for mimicking sounds they hear in there enviroment, mine beeps like the microwave, rings like the phone regular and long distance...lol etc etc.... its amazing what they will pick up.

Spike says Icarus do you want to go to bed? then goodnight, goodnight. He has this new terrible sound and my Mom calls him larry when he does it. Since it sounds like the three stoges laugh.
