Default What flips the on switch?

So recently tweetsum has become incredibly social with me and interested in learning new things as long as it involves treats lol. But aside from that I have noticed her starting to chirp and trill a lot during certain things I do like vacuum the floor or louder music. It almost seems like thi recent change came out of nowhere. If you have been following us we have had her since Jan. Also I made a similar post with Rickey several years ago. After about 7-8 month of owning him he just had this change and was like an on switch and he hasn't shut up since lol. Is this typical for them to take so long to feel comfortable and open up or do they just discover their voices and love it. I'm not sure why they did this I have just noticed a pattern with my budgies but have read other posts where they are way younger and talk and copycat. But seriously I'm loving her vocals she sounds just like Rickey and has his same tunes and a mix of her own. I was just curious if anyone knew why maybe she and Rickey waited and all of a sudden are vocal pros lol

That's really sweet, your Tweetsum seems to be quite the playful and happy girl!

How vocal a budgie is will depend on the personality and on some other outward aspects, the first one being the environment they are in.
It's perfectly normal for them to be more encouraged to sing when there is background noise in the room they are in. They can truly get into singing competitions to try to match the sound volume from the TV or other household electrical appliances.
The weather can also influence the amount of singing as well as their enthusiasm. This can be especially noticed on sunny days.
They also love to sing enthusiastically when placing the cages outside for some fresh air where they can to communicate with the sparrows and other wild birds.

It's just so neat to hear her finally lol I think my phone is filled with my budgies noises. My husband thinks I'm nuts when i show him the cute noises lol. We have lizards too and keep live crickets for their food and they really get the budgies going it's like they think it's another bird somewhere in the house lol.
