Hey you know what my DYH makes the same kind of noise. It
sounds like an alarm or a siren. I dont think ive ever
heard any onther parrots make such a noise. I always
assumed that Ginger may have picked this sound up from an
alarm of sorts from her previous owner. But i guess it
could be one of her natural sounds now that i know someone
elses amazon makes a similar noise. Who knows it could be a
coinsidence that both of our amazons picked up the sound of
a house alarm from thier previous owners
