Default Learning to talk (or normal/abnormal trilling sounds)

My bird makes a LOT of sounds. Some are obviously normal trilling sounds, but while I THOUGHT the other sounds were the beginning of speech, they're not turning into anything (and he's spitting out some more unfamiliar sounds almost daily).

Soooo... I'm looking for videos of, well, budgies learning to talk! What do they sound like?

TIA!

If you want to hear a budgie that talks really well check out Disco on YouTube

This is Penry practicing some phrases: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS9RswS1A8g

It's funny to watch this now because things he was learning then ("pick on somebody your own size"), he is a lot better at now, about a month later. I can tell when he's picking up a new phrase by listening for syllables or inflections from the phrase scattered in birdie clicks or squeaks.

Hope this helps

Thank you! This does help. My boy has been living with us for about 2 months now, and the strange garbled sounds started at least a month ago. But the thing is that I don't know if they're normal trilling sounds or the start of learning to speak. I have no idea what they are, but they're definitely catching my attention.

I'd love to see more videos of birds learning to speak! Or ones that already know how (because it's cute).

Here is a video of my Chotto. He is just starting to say "baby bird" here. He also mimics my laugh a bit. At this time, we also thought he was a she! Chotto clearly says "baby bird" now but has not picked up anything else. We never taught him to say baby bird. He just picked it up as we call him baby bird all the time.

My budgie just blurted out his first words in a complete phrase just after he made some deep throaty sounds like a parrot. When I heard the throat noise I immediately knew he was trying to talk and boy did he!! He said everything I had been saying to him for the 6 weeks I had him. Then he learned new things by listening intently and putting his ear to my lips. Now he just picks and chooses words he likes and incorporates them into phrases he knows. What puzzles me is he knows how to use adjectives and injects them properly on his own. I have a ton of recordings and a only a few videos. He tends to stop talking his rants when I'm filming. I can hide the recorder so
I catch his rants. Sooooo cute. Keep talking to him. No mirrors until he learns well. And spend as much time as you can bonding and talking to him. They relate speech with events and interactions with you.

Heidi, it took our budgie forever to talk! What we finally learned was that you have to say the phrase right in their face. Have them on your finger or sitting somewhere, put your mouth almost touching its face, and repeat the phrase with lots of enthusiasm. If he isn't learning "pretty bird" you can switch to a new phrase. Some birds never talk unfortunately or just never say certain phrases for some reason...

How young is too young for a bird to talk? Sammy is 2.5 months, and he's mimicking kissing noises (especially when he wants to play with a toy) but he hasn't said anything distinct. He chatters a lot when we aren't playing with him, though.
