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!!

In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry


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.
