Do we have other lovebirds on this list?
Anyway, my "sweet" little Melon, has been a bit of a brat lately!  He's been SCREECHING non-stop, early in the morning, every morning. Yikes!  He starts about 6am, and just chirps and chirps for about two hours!    shk  Nothing makes him stop.  Not sure why he's doing this....he's never done it before. He is 6 years old, and has always been calm and quiet. But now, YIKES.  With summer here, and windows all open, Im worried the neighbors are going to start complaining.  Does anyone else have this problem? If so, what can be done, if anything?   dknow

I have 4 very elderly love birds. They usually out in an aviary but are indoors at mo. Mine are very loud in mornings but then think my house erupts with noise in the morning as they all wake up. It do seem the light mornings are making them worse. As I am sure they have gone up a few octaves since being indoors. I have put blackout curtains up now which keeps them quieter till I open them later in the morning.

Thanks garden squirrel. I may have to start covering them at night.  I havent been, and they have done fine uncovered for the last two months or so, but now, maybe because it is so light out in the mornings, we've been having these concerts at dawn.  LOL  Maybe I'll try covering them and see if that helps. Thanks.

i've given up on covering windows to keep the darlings quiet later in the day. ya see i can keep it darker in the room, but what wakes caleb up is the outside birdies greeting the Sun.  hmm  i've explained to the local cardinals, robins, and blue jays that their jubilation is standing in the way of my beauty sleep  groggy  and they are uncooperative... to say the least.  hmm

today, caleb began celebrating morning at 630.  dknow  if ya cant beat 'em, join 'em. so now-a-days, i got to bed with the 'chickens' cause i KNOW that i'll be getting up with 'em the next day.  smile3

Oh No, not sweet adorable Melon~~Noisy?  2funny2 I guess it doesn't matter how big or small a parrot is, it can be loud when it wants to be! Not sure how old Lovies are when they mature and begin their umm love songs, but maybe at 6 he is ready to serenade the ladies, even if there is no ladies.  dmblaf

I don't have any lovies either and truly don't know much about keeping them. Glad Dawn has them and can give you pointers Judi. Must not be too many on here right now who keep them. We must do something about that!  :grin: My flock were much more noisy and moody earlier in the spring time and have now begun to settle back into the normal noisy mood swings without all the drama attached.  sad8
