I have a 5 month old Senegal named Hula. She started doing
the screaming thing as soon as I left the room. My husband
says shes a spoiled rotten brat! I put a mirror in her cage,
(I always thought that was a no no with parrots!) and she is
so busy admiring herself and singing she has totally
forgotten about screaming. There has been no signs of
agression as you may find when you give a mirror to an
amazon or bigger bird.-Heather
