This is a sample of some of the weird sounds Monta is capable of. Sometimes it almost sounds like he’s trying to talk. Other times he almost sounds like a cat. Or an alien. Or a hearing testing machine. Or a laser weapon. Or a broken spring going boing. It’s quite funny. And he sings a lot.
This evening Mon didn’t try to “attack” Monta again. A couple of friends have said they didn’t think it was really an attack, per se. Rather than Mon was trying to get attention. She never did that to Hao though. Anyway, this evening things were quieter. And I got Monta to quit pulling on my arm hairs so much (a lot of “no!” and “good bird, good bird” reinforcements. He’s not stupid.
