Birds are highly intelligent animals that require mental stimulation. Vocalisations are just one way in which birds communicate.

Know their habits

Understand bird behaviour. Most birds tend to make some noise, either by singing or squawking. Birds tend to be most vocal during waking hours in the morning and before going to sleep in the evening. Move the cage to a separate area during these times.

Reward positive behaviour

Yelling at your bird to stop squawking is seen as rewarding as you are continuing the dialogue. Leave the room until your bird is quiet for a period of time, then reward him with a treat.

Teach your bird to speak softly

Praise your bird when he whistles or whispers, instead of squawking or yelling. This may be especially useful for parrots, as it will be easier to teach soft-spoken words rather than sounds.
