We have a male alexandrine parrot that constantly squawks. What can we do to keep it quiet as we live in a residential area and it is very loud.

The only thing you can do is to find out WHY he is screaming all the time. Constant screaming indicates bird is possibly sick, hungry, bored or a combination of all of them.He's trying to tell you something.

Take him to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY in your area to rule out physical cause for this. Find an Avian Vet This exam has to be done before any type of training is done. You also need to understand that birds are very social creatures who live in flocks in the wild and adopt their human family as their flock in captivity. If he is being neglected or ignored or is not a part of your everyday life, then he will continue to scream until you understand what he's trying to tell you.

So first take him to Avian Vet for a full and thorough exam for infections or other physical issues. Then start looking at other reasons for the screaming. Birds scream for a reason, and your job is to find out what it is. If it's lack of attention, healthy food, healthy cage environment, you will need to get to the bottom of it instead of blaming the bird. The bird needs something, and he will scream until he no longer has a voice, so find out what is wrong for his sake and yours as well.

Write back in after he's been examined by the Avian Vet, and we can go from there with this. Thanks for writing and hopefully you'll get to the bottom of this shortly.
