Hello Heidi,

Thank you for rescuing that poor little bird and giving him a good home! I think Shy's vocal activity is very normal. A lot of people complain about their male birds' night time calls and have tried various ideas. We've tried covering their cages so that it is very dark. That did help somewhat. Others leave on a night light (which is opposite of covering the cages!), some have left a radio on playing softly. I've heard of others putting a small stuffed animal in the cage to offer "companionship" to a lonely bird, or even a small mirror that reflected the bird's image, making him think he seeing another bird. Your thought on getting another male is accurate; they very likely will fight. Do you take Shy out of his cage and pet him? Some people have been able to do tame their birds by offering meal worms in their hands, and eventually the bird learns to trust. But I think Shy is doing just fine with you!
