African Grey Parrot sound meanings?
I recently became the owner of a beautiful, healthy, happy, AG (Congo.) She is wonderful, and has bonded with me beyond my wildest hopes. Occasionally she sits on my shoulder and makes sounds almost exactly like a newborn puppy. She whimpers and squeaks and chirps and grunts, all the while cheerfully, but frantically, touching my face and ears-- her behavior is almost aggressive, but still cheerful. Is this a mimic, or is this a noise that AG's make to their young, or to their mother, or? What is she trying to tell me?
