I've really just been looking after this bird for a few months, and these months have been pretty hard. The bird is super easy to maintain and feed, but it's just so so noisy. In the morning, it's noisy. In the afternoon, it's noisy. It also seems to get jealous if I pay attention to the other birds - showing its jealousy by being noisy.
I've always wanted a tamed bird that I could let out of its cage, but it's simply not possible with this bird. I try to play with it and gradually let it get used to me, but it always wants to bite me. This makes it a little difficult to feed him, but once he's far away from my hand I feel comfortable removing and refilling its food.
Overall, I think the bird is pretty good. It makes for good conversation, but anyone that comes over also finds the birds noises rather annoying. It's a very pretty bird and had I been able to tame it, I would love it.
