Why would a parakeet go crazy every time it hears this song?

Updated on August 6, 2022

My boss’s family has a parakeet that chirps very loudly every time they play this song!!

What could the bird be reacting to in the song? Could it be the ch ch-ch sound?

  • Parrots, including parakeets, are pretty smart, and they like music just as we do.  And just like humans, different ones have different tastes.  

    Listening to this, I notice it has a great beat, which these birds like [and they often dance too] and a nice variety of sounds, the instruments and the chh chh and other entertaining sounds – I’m not at all surprised a parakeet would like it.  

    I think all of them like classical music, it has such a variety of instrumental sounds they can try to imitate.
