Songs and CallsUnlike other parrots they often fly silently but will sometimes emit low pitched human sounding screams. Clucking sound from young birds indicates hunger. In captivity this parrot is an exceptional mimic and may be taught to vocalize human speech. It is considered second only to the African Gray Parrot in this ability.
