There's This One Thing That Really Annoys Me About Parrots...

Photo by David Location: Coney Island, NY Shown: Animal Open House Aviaries My cockatoo, Bondi, makes this obnoxious sound on metal. If I take all the metal away (which is impossible by the way because eventually she will even do it on the cage bars) she will find something to do this sound on.

Accidents Happen: Thank God for Freeflight
