African Grey screeching
by: Tracie

Some African Greys are scared of everything. Moving has probably been very traumatic. If you moved recently, then it simply isn't used to the new place.

Try to pay attention to when it screeches, in case the cage just needs to be moved to a different location or something. Try to create the environment around the cage to be much like the mobile home, like putting the same furniture next to the cage etc.

If you moved a long time ago, and the bird is still screeching, then you need to Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to rule out illness.
