Hi have a Sun Conure and an Indian Ringneck. For a Conure, mine is pretty quiet but she does have random days that all she wants to do is scream and it actually rings in my ear. I let her though and walk to another room. When she is quiet I return and I show her that quiet bird brings me back not loud birdie. My indian ringneck is quiet too, sometimes you can't even tell that I have birds, but when she gets into it, she goes all out. lol. So imagine my house when you have two that decide to go at it at different random times. We are used to it and don't mind, its not every moment and every day. It doesn't seem to bother anyone else either. When I do need them to be quiet I bring out a treat, snack and new toy which works, I change the atmosphere to distract them and I only do this when I really need to because I am on a call or someone visits. I had an African Grey years ago and I remember how loud they can be but my Sun Conure sometimes can scream her lungs away and sounds louder than any Parrot in the World! lol. I love them both dearly! Good Luck.

Hi there, it is a Parrot's nature to screech loudly so let him or her be; these birds can be very loud sometimes. One of the things that one has to take into consideration before buying or taking a bird into their homes. I do have an Orange Winged Amazon, he is four years old and he screeches about three times a week on evenings when he flies because he is happy. It doesn't bother me nor my neighbors and I do live in an apartment building. If it is a few screeches a day it shouldn't bother you or anyone else. Try talking to divert the bird's attention if you do think that the screeching is too much. Good luck and God bless!
