    My BC Conure is VERY noisy, she/he has always been a bit noisy
    but lately she/he can't seem to shut up. She does talk, she
    has about 7 or 8 phrases that she says, most of it learned
    before I got here, but mostly all she does is screech these
    days. I believe We are her 4th or 5th owner. Probably because
    of the noise. I was not looking for bird, but took her as a
    favor to a friend, I have had her for about 15 years now. She
    does make us laugh, she has bonded with my husband, I do all
    the feeding, cleaning,etc. and she loves him best go figure.
