She called my dad at work one day and said he had to come home, Frampton was trying to kill her. When my dad walked through the door, my mom was in the bedroom with the door closed, and Frampton was slowly walking down the hall, saying "Caaaarole" :lau

:lol: That is hilarious.

Omg that is hilarious! I can see Charley doing that! She sings the five dollar foot long song, she makes every sound of every animal in the house, even the jump yips of our prarie dogs. She tells our dogs, " good girl" and " shut up". What's so funny is that she knows the exact appropriate time to use whatever saying she's mimicking. She doesn't care for me because my wife is her "mate", but so far she hadn't attacked. I'll be on the look out though! 😁
She has perfected the tweet on my iPhone so well that she makes me look every time! She burps, farts, heck she even imitates my other parrots noises lol. I wish I wasn't afraid of her, but I learned the hard way that with her it can be a kiss one second and a scarred lip the next! So we don't have that kind of relationship anymore 😢
She's a hoot though.

My uncle tried to play a trick on my dad. You only had to repeat a word 5-10 times before Frampton learned it. One day while my dad was gone, my uncle thought it would be funny to teach Frampton how to say "prick" so he would call my dad that later. Frampton never associated that word with anyone else. After that, every time my uncle came over, as soon as Frampton saw him he would scream at the top of his lungs "Prick!!!"

Ducks are all about their  social bonds.  It sounds like this duck wants to make a new bond with something.  I'm sorry she lost her partner.

 

The head bob and weird quack sounds like something my girls do when they're confessing affection for each other & about to play hop on top with each other.   The quack she makes-- does it sound like three quick quak-quak-quak  (not an actual quack), that sounds more like a cartoon sound effect than a normal quack?  Does the sound get faster each time she repeats it like she is getting more excited?

 

I don't think I'm describing it well. I may have some videos of my girls that demonstrate it.

 

My ducks are bonded to each other but they'd welcome in my, my husband, my dogs, the neighbor kids etc. when they start the head bob ritual. For them its like a daily commitment ceremony and they never get tired of it.
