I don't think it is a toy noise after all :lol: I think I have realised what it is now ( or maybe not) :lol:
Liseth makes this noise mostly when I cover her house at bedtime. It is white with flowers on, which she loves to look at. Last night I was going to change to a new cover , she was pushing the new one off and shouting at me. I returned her usual one and she immediately calmed down, looked at her flowers and made her noise. :lol: :thumbsup:

Oh. Lordy, Lady, if we are all going to need to wear an 'idiot hat' every time we ask a question that has an obvious answer, I am going to buy shares on the company that makes them! :lol: Don't worry about it and keep on asking! It's always easier to see things clearly from a distance than it is when we have the thing right in front of our faces and, like they say in Spanish: four eyes see more than two! Besides, Liz is 100% correct about other people reading our questions and replies and learning from them - it is, after all, the main purpose of a forum. And I am glad you have been feeding gloop all along - I swear by a fresh food diet for parrots!

Thanks Pajarita . To me gloop has just been dinner ! :lol:

It could be her happy noise. I don't know if there is exactly such a thing but it seems to me that many parrots have one or two noises that they only use when they are relaxed and appear to be happy. Kookooloo has a sound that may be similar to what you describe, but often uses a grinding of the beak sound for this just as much. Mimi, the amazon has a sort of squeaky noise when she is happy. Kiki, Senegal, uses a beak grinding noise when she is happy.

Thankyou Wolf that is very interesting indeed. I will see it as a happy noise now. Beak grinding is something an old cockatiel used to do but not the rest of the flock. You have made my day having a squeaky Amazon ! :thumbsup: :lol:
