Screeching Behavior in your Nanday Conure.
Conures screech for many reasons. They may be happy to see you. They
may be looking for a mate. They may also be screeching to manipulate you
into a behavior. For example, does your Nanday screech when you place him
back in his cage? Does he screech when you walk out of the room or away
from his cage? If so, you must ignore the screech. Returning to the
cage or back into the room only serves to reinforce his behavior.
sure that your Nanday’s screeching behavior isn’t caused by boredom, lack of
nutrition, too small of a cage or any other environmental issue. Remember
that your Nanday is an incredibly social and animated parrot, occasional
screeching may simply be his way of communicating with you. However, the
screeching behavior can be modified with appropriate training.

merely an overzealous hello. Nandays are social birds that thrive on
interacting with their family. A beaking greeting may be simply that and
your Nanday Conure may not know that he’s putting too much pressure on your
skin. However, a bite can be just that, a bite and that behavior must be
eliminated before it escalates into a very aggressive bird.

Is your bird beaking or is he biting? When does he bite, when you take him
out of the cage? Does he bite when you’re playing? These types of
bites may be overzealous beaking. Do not react to the bite by yelling,
hitting, or jerking your hand away. These actions tend to reinforce the
behavior by creating frightened and aggressive birds.
