Sherry - We have a Nanday male, 2 years old. We also have a Sun Conure male, 4 years old. Our Nanday isn't anywhere as loud as our Sun. He has periods where he gets spooked or doesn't like a stranger outside where he will do the conure call - but it still is nothing compared to our Sun's call. He is actually quite cute (the nanday) when he does his little mating/play calls and squeaks - but again as Lynn said, everyone has there level of annoyance to certain sounds. I think your Nanday will be fine, and you will have great fun with him. Good Luck !!
