He is the quietest bird I've ever seen. He chirps, but not excessively. He's friendly too, but still a little nervous. We clipped his wings so he can't take offf again. If he tries to fly off while we have him out, he will come back to us when we put our finger out and call him. He prefers to be inside his cage right now. I'm hoping he'll loosen up a bit as he gets used to us.
