I wouldn't ignore a baby bird. My old bird is who I wanted to say was playing up and I ignored him for a short while until he said hello.

Parrotsforlife is who advocated ignoring the bird and that is no longer the recommended way of addressing this type of problem, although about 20 years ago it was still in mainstream usage, but we have learned more about our parrots since that time.
All of my birds came to me as adults, but I still went with the ideas that I have just shared. I never ignore my birds when they call for me especially when I can not get in to check on them right away, If it is important enough to them to call for me then it is important enough to me to at least answer them, just as I would answer any other friend that called to me.
