Default Funny habit with talking

So Kowhai is finally speaking! He says a few words and one phrase:
"Kowhai" "Daisuki"(Japanese for I love you) "Chu" (Japanese 'kissy' sound) and "I love kisses"

But he only says them when he's uh...feeling 'frisky'. The rest of the time (if he's feeling chatty) he only makes the regular *smooch* sound effect or just squeaks and squawks to himself. He only speaks during his hormonal rush. I wonder why that is? I repeat these phrases and words all the time in all situations, so I find it funny he only chooses to use them when trying to win over my hand (which is always rejected :x)

That's hilarious Kowhai is so silly

Perhaps he's still nervous about pronouncing his new words and the hormonal rush he gets makes him cocky and confident

That makes perfect sense! He is such a different bird when he's trying to get frisky. His pupils dilate and he tries to grab things with both his wings and it's so funny (though I do try to discourage it)!

That’s so cute thanks for sharing. It must be adorable hearing a budgie talk. I’ve never heard it in person.

Kowhai sounds like a real little goofball. I'd love to see a video of him talking if you're able to get one.

How long did it take before he started talking?

I got him when he was 3 months old and he's 8 months now. I think it was just me repeating the same words and phrases for a few months. I don't know if that was fast for him to learn to talk, but he never had an interest in other birds or birdsong and he thinks he's a people, so I think that might have played a role in his learning?
