It has been observed in wild parrots that various parrot species actually have a tendency of engaging in rather quirky mating behaviour. Although some of parrot mating behaviour could be seen as "unusual" or even "unacceptable" to us humans, it could be considered "normal" behaviour in that particular species.

Funny thing is she lunges at me just as often as she flirts with me! So very fickle!

Hi, hope someone can help, hope this isnt a silly question. Tonight my grey, Merlin, has been making some strange noises. He'll be a year old in June. Earlier in his cage he's fine, happily making noises. I got him out of his cage and he flew straight to me as he does every night. But tonight he's making a sound like the video on this post. Is this normal for his age as he's not a year old just yet. He sat on my arm for his strokes and rub and makes the noises. Am i worrying over nothing? sorry if a daft question
