Has anyone else taken up "swearing" like their birds?

    Birds have a whole lexicon for life, incl. sounds for happiness, irritation, displeasure and, well, kind of swearing...

    Has anyone else, subconsciously, take up using bird words in similar, but human, situations?

    Thanks

    Oh yes. When I'm happy and cozy and settled in, I tend to make the long, throaty exhaling sound "HRAAAAF" that my goose makes when she's comfortable. People not familiar with Goose think that I've got something stuck in my throat. Language barrier.
