Message:They grind their beaks when especialy relaxed and comfortable - helps trim up the beak to keep it in shape. They can also make a rasping or purring noise, when happy, excited, or in a breeding mood. Both are perfectly natural noises. Actualy, they have an immense range of vocalizations, and they use them appropriately for certain situations. Expect to learn some conure-speak as you get to know your buddy, they're like to be vocal, and don't always communicate by screaming.

Have fun!
