This awesome little demonstration from mytoos.com shows exactly why special consideration should be given before accepting ownership of a parrot. These majestic animals are not for the casual owner who think “it’s cool” to own a parrot. Do you like living next to an airport? Probably not, and most likely, your neighbors don’t either. These birds are just as loud as a 747 jumbo jet and are easily loud enough to cause ear damage.
Could you live with that kind of noise on a daily basis? Could your neighbors? This is just one example of the kind or consideration that must be given before taking on such an awesome pet.
