Spring has arrived and my lovely budgie, Pippin, has started calling for the birds outside (I think.) She can keep going for hours with a non-stop, monotonous "EEEP" "EEEP" sound. I'm pretty sure that she is not calling for me, since she'll keep going incessantly, even when I'm in the room or when she is perched on my shoulder (... very painful for the ears, I might add! )
It is so loud that even if I live in a flat in a concrete building, my downstairs neighbours can hear the bird.
I know birds should be allowed to be vocal in the morning and evening, and if she were chirping, singing og shrieking that would be fine. I don't mind that at all. But it seems as if this one incredibly loud and high pitch noise has replace all her other sounds. She'll usually calm down late in the afternoon and be her cheerful, talkative old self.
I don't know what to do. I try playing with her, offering baths (which she loves) and feeding her first thing in the morning, responding to her, talking to her, and I've also tried ignoring the sounds all together, but nothing seems to be working.
If you had any advice, I would very much appreciate it!
I'm scared that the noise will distrupt the neightbours to such an extent that I will have to find her a new home
