    How To Teach Your Bird To Whistle

    Follow these steps to learn how to teach your pet bird to whistle amazing melodies and songs.

     Firstly make sure the bird is old enough. Birds can learn to sing at any age, but they won’t have the physical capacity to form their notes until they’re fledged.

     The room you teach your bird to whistle in should be quiet and free from distractions. Make sure there is no radio or TV switched on in the room.

     For beginner, young birds, keep the whistling short and simple so they can learn it easier. You don’t want to confuse them early on.

     Watch your bird to see if it is learning. If it moves its head from side to side or up and down, it is listening to you and paying attention.

    If your bird seems to ignore you, maybe it can’t understand your melody. Change your tune to one it will be able to understand for now.

     Once your bird learns more and more tunes, increase the difficulty and soon your pet bird will be singing all sorts of melodies!
