Ive posted something about this before but I didnt describe the word much what does it mean if your cockatiels tail is vibrating (shaking fast)?

Just thought I'd add a picture of my African Grey Tiko since nobody ever saw her.

Brandon, would you believe it, I just posted about tail vibrating just a second before I read your post! I can't find much info either except if they do this immediately at something then it means they are excited/happy, and it they do it a little bit after "something" it means they are frustrated. Today Taco has been doing this while preening. She would preen for a minute then fan her tail really fast. Since it is about a minute into preening, I take it as being frustrated???

He usually makes those cute little crunching beak sounds while doing it and thanks Tiko is really nice and friendly but she can give a hard bite if you do something wrong

Hi, my husband wanted an African Grey but I wondered how active and noisy they are as Peppy is a bit too much already, He wants a talker to replace our previous vocal bird. Any advice would be welcome.

Tiko isn't noisy at all she is 6 years old and has never made any African grey noises she does mimic the cockatiel chirp and Rocko chirps back and she talks and makes sounds from Tv turning on etc but she's never noisy and they really have a good bond with you.She's also very shy she won't talk if your in the room but when your in a different room you can hear her saying a lot lol
