Default Squawking

Recently Trickee has been more vocal and starting chirping for attention. Today although he started squawking for no reason. It sounds like he's angry but nothing is wrong. His food and water bowl is fresh and new. He has access to leave the cage if he wants. But for some reason he just sits there and squawks for hours and doesn't stop unless I come and take him out. I also looked for any injuries and he's fine, nothing seemed to hurt him. He just squawks and won't stop unless he's out of the cage. His poop is a normal green color but its lumpy I smeared it and it was just poop no food in it or anything. His urates are white now and not a slight yellowish anymore. He doesn't seem sick at all he just is squawking.

Trickee just sounds like a normal budgie . When healthy budgies are comfortable in their surroundings, unless they’re really young, they are a typically very vocal species. The amount of noise that comes from budgies is unexpected for some new owners. Sounds like Trickee is a happy little guy .

He is also opening up more, like today he started wanting kisses (I know about the saliva thing) and he is stepping up without a problem. He seems less scared and suspicious about what will happen. He has been making strange noises like a slight singing sound. I think he is trying to open up and sing. And instead of always staying in one spot he has started moving around and investigating things.

Sounds great Ted. It looks like you and Trickee are off to a good start of a long, close relationship .

Trickee is just practicing singing right now. It takes a little while for them to get “good at it”. I thought my male was a terrible singer . Then when he got older he started to sing a much better song .

He sounds like a monkey, when I let him out for breakfast he will sit there and quietly chirp for a bit and then get really loud like he is chirping his lungs out. After a while he will start coming out of the cage and start squawking and flapping his wings and he sounds like a monkey. He does this for about 20 minutes or so until he's tired and then eats and takes a 5-10 minute nap on one foot and then comes out again and starts squawking except more into a singing tone. Like a chirp plus a squawk and weird unexplainable noises added together. He will lean over and look around for me and when I say "hi" he will tilt his head and run back in and out and then start chirping again. When I come pick him up and put him on my desk he usually hangs out on my monitor and watches what I do and then take short naps and fly back to his cage when he's hungry again. Near 6-7 he gets really sleepy and starts wanting to be on my desk instead of on my monitor and snuggles up next to something and sleeps. When I usually go to bed is around 9-10 so around that time he heads to his nightime perch and beak grinds and falls asleep with his head tucked into his back. My room is normally quiet and only has the slight sound of a fan running and sometimes he can hear the stuff I'm doing through my headphones or I turn the radio on. I was thinking about getting him a partner but it would be WAY too loud for my apartment especially on the fact I live under adults since I was given the master bedroom. And they already aren't fond of his morning squawks but there is NO WAY I would get rid of him. I have school from 6:30-3:30 which doesn't really matter because I leave the door open and my mom has the tv on all the time and he can hear that. She also comes and checks on him from time to time when he has his squawking fits. By the time I come home there is seeds everywhere on his table. He hears the smallest of noises and goes crazy like phone buzzes and notifications coming through my headphones. There is also a few songs that makes his squawking start with certain beats or something. He also has this head twitching thing when he squawks like he shakes his head and also fluffs up and shakes his tail and few times. I have a mechanical keyboard which makes him go super crazy and since I have to type and alot he will chirp alot. But when he's not chirping he's looking around, preening, or sleeping.

Wild budgies are flock birds all their life and keeping close with the flock is how they are able to survive as individuals. They make sounds from idle low chatter, contact chirping, and what I think people are calling squawking (kind of a gravely loud stacato vocalization.
In a safe environment, I would interpret this sound as just happy play. Humans may not understand, but just because it sounds different and to some people, angry, it's perfectly normal in budgies that are feelin' good.
