Parakeets are very smart birds. Parakeet sounds are varied and they use them to communicate in the wild. For instance, a sound like “ack” “ack” which is a light, joyful sound that it makes when it is very excited and happy. It usually involves a parakeet nodding its head in absolute abandon.
When you bring a Parakeet into your home, do not be surprises if he starts imitating the sounds he hears in his surroundings. Male Parakeets are the most talkative and easiest to train. Nevertheless, not all Parakeets will acquire human vocalization.
Young hand-fed Parakeets are the most likely to learn how to “speak” like a human. It all depends on how much attention you give it and the strength of the bond you forge with him. The Parakeet sounds will amaze you. For instance, although some Parakeets might not produce human sounds, they will happily sing along music playing in their environment or imitate the sound of a truck or other vehicles that they can hear in the neighborhood.
Another of the interesting Parakeet sounds is the “ARK! ARK! ARK!” sound that they make when they are angry. It is as if they were saying, “get out of here! Leave me alone!”.
Moreover, since they like to live in large communities, if you take one of them away from the rest, a curious one of the Parakeet sounds is when interaction occurs. The isolated Parakeet begins to yelp loudly in a high-pitched tone crying out for help. It is as if he were saying, “Help, I am lost!” The other Parakeets begin to yell out to him as if helping him to find his way back home.
The fact is that in the wild, if there are no sounds in the environment, it usually means that a predator is about. Therefore, when there are many Parakeet sounds happening in the surroundings, the Parakeets feel safe and content. Consequently, never leave your Parakeet alone in a room without music or a recording of Parakeet sounds. If you do not provide him these sounds, his level of stress will increase considerably. There are many Parakeet sounds’ audio files on the Internet that you can download and play for your Parakeet.
One of the most common Parakeet sounds is the contented chirrup they make when going to sleep, listening to music, perched on your shoulder, or grooming himself. It is like the sound of a cat purring near your ear.
